Which states rely most on Federal funding?

https://finance.yahoo.com/news/states-dependent-federal-government-180735773.html

Red states use the most, blue states, the least.
Funny, since the right is always wanting to cut benefits.

5. If you remove

Social Security and military funding both of which have a great deal more to do with weather and cost of living and nothing to do with helping the state; then it would be a much more interesting number.

6. I found this info:

This looks at mandatory and discretionary grants given to states to supplement state revenues.
Numbers are from 2017

"Federal grants to state and local governments help finance critical programs and services across the country. These grants provide roughly 31 percent of state budgets and 23 percent of state and local budgets combined, according to the most recent data. They support health care, public education, housing, community development, child care, job training, transportation, and clean water, among other programs, which are vital to residents of every state — particularly those with low or moderate incomes. Many states are experiencing revenue shortfalls and struggle in most years to find adequate revenues to support services; without federal aid, they would likely cut or eliminate many of these programs."

"The vast majority of this funding — $391 billion, or 83 percent — was for Medicaid and the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP). The rest, $83 billion, funded numerous other programs for families and children."

Top ten states receiving grants in percent of state revenue:
Michigan 41.90%
New Mexico 41.40%
Mississippi 41.10%
Montana 40.40%
Tennessee 39.80%
Indiana 39.20%
Louisiana 38.20%
Alaska 38.0%
Alabama 37.90%
New Hampshire 37.10%

Top 10 states by dollars
California $96.1 mil
New York $52.9 mil
Texas $46.8 mil
Pennsylvania $29.4 mil
Florida $26.7 mil
Michigan $22.8mil
Illinois $16.3 mil
New Jersey $16.1 mil
Arizona $14.9 mil
