North Dakota may be a small state, but on a per capita basis we’re top five in terms of federal dollars received for COVID-19 relief funding. As was pointed out in an article by Fortune last week, the nonprofit Peter G. Peterson Foundation has assembled a state-by-state breakdown of how federal aid has been disbursed.
As of this writing, the nonprofit’s chart shows that North Dakota is #5 in dollars received on a per capita basis. Ahead of us are Alaska, New York, Vermont, and the District of Columbia.
- District of Columbia — $7,811
- Vermont — $7,146
- New York — $6,909
- Alaska — $6,819
- North Dakota — $6,652
Overall, more than $5 billion has been distributed to our state. You can click here for a complete breakdown of how those funds have been received.
