Tracking Your Stimulus Dollars Through Texoma


Millions of stimulus dollars are coming to Texoma. Much of the $787 billion federal stimulus package is being spent on unemployment benefits and Medicaid, but millions of dollars towards infrastructure repairs are coming to southeastern Oklahoma and North Texas.

The KTEN viewing area is getting over $119 million in stimulus funds for infrastructure - new roads, bridges, etc. Break that down and our Oklahoma counties are receiving $76.5 million and our North Texas counties are getting $42.8 million.

There is a new way you can track your tax dollars in Texoma. KTEN invites you to visit a new stimulus tracking website sponsored by MSNBC.
