A new study says the state of Vermont gets more federal aid per capita than other states.
The study by the Brookings Institution says Vermont receives double the national average.
The Burlington Free Press says only the District of Columbia receives more than Vermont.
The Brookings data shows Vermont received almost $1.8 billion in federal money in fiscal 2008, or $2,800 per capita.
Nevada received the least amount of federal money just $742 per capita.
