Abstract

The economic state of affairs facing states of the twenty-first century posed substantial threat to the future availability of public funds for postsecondary education. The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (Public Law 111–5 2009) provided temporary relief to state budgets through the State Fiscal Stabilization Fund to ensure that appropriate funding continues for education and government services.
