ARRA at Jefferson Lab
Jefferson Lab received a total of $86.5 million from the U.S. Department of Energy's Office of Science, under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA). The funds are being used for projects that support the lab's scientific mission, while also generating economic benefits for the local community and residents.
As of June 2010, a total of 238.6 jobs had been created or saved as a result of ARRA activity at Jefferson Lab.
|12 GeV Upgrade - $65 million - For purchase of components for SRF accelerator cryomodules, the Central Helium Liquefier coldbox and accelerator magnets.|
