State-by-State Breakdown of the Economic Stimulus Plan?
How much will your state get from the economic stimulus plan? The Senate Democratic Policy Committee has created fact sheets for each state with data on everything from school computers to senior meals. If you want to dig deeper, the Congressional Research Service has a spreadsheet on how much your school district will get for special education and to help failing students. The Center for American Progress has a map that compares overall funding to each state’s gross state product.
Meanwhile, if you’re interested in specific issues, here’s how transportation and infrastructure spending breaks down by state, including highway and bridge funding for every large metropolitan area from Albuquerque to Youngstown. (We just published a map and chart showing that states with high unemployment are actually getting less money per capita or even per unemployed worker than states with low unemployment when it comes to infrastructure spending.)

Information on state budget assistance, food stamps, child support funding, job training and emergency shelters can be found in this report by the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities.
