What each state gets under the economic stimulus package


Now that Congress has delivered to the president the economic-stimulus bill for his expected signature, how much aid will your state get in the final compromise package? The Center for American Progress, a progressive think tank, updated an online map on February 13 to show state-by-state funding levels according to the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act.

Clicking on each state reveals its share, but only for a portion (69%) of the stimulus package. The think tank could figure out state allotments for the programs involving tax cuts, unemployment insurance and food stamps, green energy projects, education spending, state infrastructure projects and Medicaid. But 31% of the stimulus package isn't represented on the map, the center says, because that money "will be distributed through competitive grants to states and localities, or through funding formulas where it is not possible to make estimates at this stage. The remainder is for programs that are distributed at the federal level."
