Recovery Act Funded Projects at the SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory
In February 2009, the President signed the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (Recovery Act) into law. The Department of Energy's (Department) Office of Science received approximately $1.6 billion through the Recovery Act which it used to invest in science projects including approximately $97 million for major construction, laboratory infrastructure, and research efforts at the SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory (SLAC) located in Menlo Park, California. These funds were allocated to eight projects to improve mission readiness and science capability. SLAC is managed and operated by Stanford University. The SLAC Site Office is responsible for overseeing SLAC, including its management of these projects.
