A recently released update on Census-driven federal funding distribution to the states shows North Dakota receives the second-lowest amount of funding at $3.8 billion.
Only Wyoming receives less at $2.9 billion.
Most of the Census-driven federal funding in North Dakota goes toward Medicare and Medicaid payments.
While the total amount seems low compared to other states, when measured as a percentage of personal income, the Census-based payments account for 9 percent, putting North Dakota exactly in the middle of the pack at #25 among the 50 states.
