Stimulus Funds Worth 1,700 UGA Jobs

University of Georgia officials say they used federal stimulus money to pay the equivalent of more than 1,700 employees in August.

UGA got about $19 million from the nearly $1 billion in American Recovery and Reinvestment Act funds that went to the University
System of Georgia this year.

School officials said Thursday that an equivalent of 1,723.9 full-time employees were paid with the funds in August.

The university submitted the figures to the state to be included in a nationwide federal database.
