Beyond the Beltway series: Overview: The Nationwide Allocation of $541 billion | Tax Cuts to Make Work Pay | Helping Those Most in Need | 21st Century Education | Protecting Vital Services | Energy & Infrastructure

*This data is current as of Monday 2/2.

The House and Senate American Recovery and Reinvestment Acts include spending provisions and tax cuts aimed at reviving our ailing economy. The maps compare the amount that each state will get relative to 
the size of its economy. This is measured using 2007 Gross State `Product.

 

These state and local funds include direct tax cuts for working families; increased unemployment insurance and food stamps to help those most in need; new funding to equip the education system for the 21st century; additional funds for existing clean energy programs; state-level infrastructure projects; and assistance that is necessary to protect vital services such as Medicaid.

Many of the other programs in the recovery plan 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. It has not been possible to include these programs in our analysis. The methodology can be found here; you can access the supporting data here (xls), or download the house data and senate data as pdfs.

We are very grateful to the Center for Law and Social Policy, the Institute on Taxation and Economic Policy, the National Employment Law Project, the National Energy Assistance Directors’ Association, and The Workforce Alliance.
