Here are the 10 states that have received the most coronavirus funding so far

The federal government has already committed trillions of taxpayer dollars for coronavirus relief this year. Most of that funding came in the form of the $2.2 trillion CARES Act that Congress passed and President Donald Trumps signed in the spring.

But where is that money being spent?

Are some states receiving more than others, or is the spending fairly even?

The Peter G. Peterson Foundation, an organization focused on informing the public about U.S. fiscal policy, has been keeping track of where the federal funds are going. This week,
the foundation published a breakdown of where the $1.7 trillion that has been spent so far went and how those monies were distributed on a state-by-state basis.

The report details how much has been distributed to each state, the programs — such as the Paycheck Protection Program and the stimulus payments — through which the funds were funneled, and how much each state received per capita.

Below are two lists of the 10 states the received the most coronavirus funds.

The first is on a per-capita basis, showing which states receive the most money for every citizen. Topping that list is Vermont, which has seen $7,130 per person, so far. (Washington, D.C., would have come in first with $7,749, but it’s not a state.) That’s nearly twice what South Carolina, which came in last on the list, has taken in at $3,754 per person.

The second list shows the states that received the most total funding and through which programs. It should come as no surprise that the larger states have larger overall aid totals. California, naturally, tops the list with $231.2 billion, while Wyoming — which came in No. 5 on the per capita list — ranked 50th in total coronavirus aid with $3.7 billion.
