How Much Stimulus Funding is Going to Your County?

Orange County, Calif., funds by National Science Foundation

Listing $17,638,366.66 in stimulus funds from National Science Foundation for Orange

Note: For some programs where states do not report where money will be distributed across the state, we do not have the allocation for individual counties. Those programs include: Medicaid, unemployment benefits and food stamps. Those amounts are included in the totals for where the state agency receiving that money is located.

Amount refers to both the amount of stimulus funding going toward the project and the face value of the loan.
