From the Pueblo Chieftain (Matt Hildner):

The stimulus package will bring $20.2 million in agency spending to Colorado, although Mike Blakeman, a spokesman for the agency in the San Luis Valley, said specific spending totals for local projects would not be available until early next week…

The valley would also see habitat restoration projects for riparian areas along the Rio Grande and wetland restoration at San Luis Lakes. The Zapata Falls recreation area, just south of the Great Sand Dunes National Park, would get money for campground construction. Other spending on the Department of Interior’s lands in the San Luis Valley include $2.6 million at Great Sand Dunes National Park and $1.95 million at three national wildlife refuges.
