The U.S. General Services Administration said that it awarded construction projects to more than 500 companies creating jobs in all 50 states, 2 territories, and the District of Columbia by investing $4 billion in American Recovery and Reinvestment Act funds.

Since the passage of the Recovery Act, GSA infused funding into 391 projects. The agency funded $173 million of additional work to equip U.S. federal buildings with cost-saving, energy-conserving, sustainable features at no additional cost to the taxpayer.

GSA anticipates that all new construction and major modernization of buildings will achieve at least a LEED Silver certification from the U.S. Green Building Council for GSA's use of cutting-edge and sustainable design and technology.

GSA was appropriated more than $5.5 billion under the Recovery Act to convert federal facilities into high-performance green buildings and construct energy-efficient federal buildings, courthouses, and land ports of entry.
