Use the interactive map below to explore the state-level breakdown of total estimated funding across four allocation categories: 1) Main Capital (employment-based); 2) SEDI Allocation; 3) SEDI Incentive; and 4) Very Small Business. Hover over a state to quickly show allocation category breakdown details. Click on a state in the map to see the category breakdown details in the bar chart beneath the map — or hold ‘Ctrl’ and click on multiple states to compare. Click on white space in the map to reset state selections.
The main capital (employment-based) category accounts for the greatest share of estimated funding in every state and territory. This funding is based on a state’s share of unemployment and job losses from the past few years. The very small business portion is allocated on a similar formula, but must focus on companies with fewer than ten employees.
The SEDI portion is divided into two amounts. The allocation for the states is, essentially, based on the share of a state’s population residing in low-income areas. The incentive piece is the minimum that a state may be able to access if it achieves SEDI investment goals (to be determined later). States that fall short of these goals may receive less than this incentive amount, while states that perform better may compete for an additional $200 million in incentives.
