Methodology

The information in this database has been collected through legislation and executive orders. Where appropriate, press releases and news articles have been used to complete details on the specific use of funds. This database does not include proposals.

Below is an explanation of the Authority filter.

Authority

Spending authority over the CSFRF varies by state. Authority is largely determined by each state’s interpretation of its constitutional and statutory provisions describing authority over contingency federal funds and authority to spend during a state of emergency. Some laws supersede others.

In this database, “Authority” refers to the entity that allocates funds (ie, law or decree).
