Budgets can be kind of mind-numbing to look at, so a lot of people may not know where a government gets its money or how it spends that cash. The National Priorities Project is trying to change that.

The non-partisan group works to make the federal budget accessible to average citizens. It’s launched a new website that breaks down how much federal money goes to each state. Lindsay Koshgarian, Research Director at National Priorities Project, said of the $3 trillion federal budget, Arizona gets about $68 billion.
