Impact Aid Recipients

Because Impact Aid is distributed to school districts with specific populations, funding is not equitably disbursed among the states. In fact, the top five Impact Aid states account for nearly half of all Basic Support payments. The largest recipient of Basic Support payments is Arizona, which received $160 million in fiscal year 2013. Other major recipients include Alaska ($133 million), Texas ($93 million), New Mexico ($86 million), and California ($57 million). Every state received some impact aid in 2013.
