Almost all changes to federal policy affect state revenue, economies, and residents. The Pew Charitable Trusts examines the intersection of federal and state fiscal policies among several different areas, including:
- Grants to states that fund a wide range of programs and projects, such as Medicaid, infrastructure, and education.
- Federal and state spending on natural disasters, including how both levels of government pay for and coordinate around wildfires, hurricanes, and other emergencies.
- Federal aid to states in response to recessions.
