About 2,300 Georgians face the prospect of losing jobs they started earlier this year.
The stimulus package allotted $21 million in funds to boost Georgia's economy.
But only half of that has been used, so far.
Even in tough times, the stimulus money helped employers hire new workers by reimbursing them 80-percent of an employee's salary.
"The job market right now is fairly flat, fairly stagnant," said Richard Ramsey, with the Georgia Department of Labor in Lowndes County. "We don't anticipate a lot of growth until the private sector is able to start expanding."
Although funding ends today, the decision to keep these workers lies with their respective employers.
