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 | Wrap Up: Local Recovery

The House and Senate American Recovery and Reinvestment Acts include spending provisions and tax cuts aimed at reviving our ailing economy. Both bills contain measures aimed at energy measures including the Weatherization Assistance Program and State Energy Program, highway infrastructure investments, transit investments, and clean water investments. Other competitive grants are also available to states for energy and infrastructure. The maps below analyze how much of this will go to people in each state.


This is part of a week-long series that examines the state-level implications of different aspects of the package; the series began with an overview map showing how $541 billion will be allocated to the states.

The methodology for this and other maps in this series can be found here; you can access the supporting data for the series here (xls).
