ND Ranks Top Five as Recipient of COVID-19 Relief Funds

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.

  1. District of Columbia — $7,811
  2. Vermont — $7,146
  3. New York — $6,909
  4. Alaska — $6,819
  5. 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.

About T. Arthur Mason 874 Articles
T. Arthur Mason is a native North Dakotan who has spent nearly all of his life in the Peace Garden State. As the third of four children in Western North Dakota, Mason grew to appreciate family and the outdoors. Some of his fondest memories are annual deer hunts with family and friends. In his early teenage years, faith became a central part of T. Arthur Mason's life. He and the majority of his family attend church together on a weekly basis and find this a fulfilling aspect of their lives. Through the influence of his father, T. Arthur Mason became intrigued with politics. As a boy, he attended political events with his father and enjoyed the friendships that resulted as a byproduct of those political associations. As Mason grew older, he became convinced that the quote often attributed to Thomas Jefferson was true, "That government is best which governs least." Today, T. Arthur Mason enjoys time with his wife and children, an occasional hunt, and an increasingly active life on the political scene. This blog is the fulfillment of a dream to design a web site in the realm of politics and to advocate for the principles of Liberty and constitutionally limited government. On behalf of all those that contribute to The Minuteman, we hope you enjoy your time on the site and will share the message with others.
