According to Michelle Malkin:

Under the Obama administration, ATF reaped another $21.9 million to expand Project Gunrunner (nearly half from the stimulus boondoggle), and the White House has requested almost $12 million more in fiscal year 2011 appropriations for the program.
I researched that figure, and I came across an old post from 2009 in which a poster found this bit on page 45 of the stimulus bill:

For an additional amount for "State and Local Law Enforcement Assistance", $100,000,000, to remain available until September 30, 2010, for competitive grants to provide assistance and equipment to local law enforcement along the Southern border and in High-Intensity Drug Trafficking Areas to combat criminal narcotics activity stemming from the Southern border, of which $10,000,000 shall be transferred to "Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, Salaries and Expenses" for the ATF Project Gunrunner.
Sometimes it’s nice not to destroy the world for a change.
