Research and Analysis

State & Local Spotlight

COVID Relief Includes $360 Billion of State and Local Aid

Most state and local governments are experiencing substantial revenue losses and new spending needs as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic and economic crisis. While estimates differ on the magnitude of state and localneeds, federal funding from recent COVID-relief legislation may help defray some of these losses.

Using our COVID Money Tracker tool, we estimate the federal government has allocated almost $360 billion toward state and local aid; this is significantly larger than our prior estimate of roughly $240 billion because it incorporates updated Medicaid estimates from the Congressional Budget Office (CBO).
