This article describes and analyzes state aid to local government, with special attention to state revenue-sharing programs. State governments provided $130 billion of aid to local governments in fiscal year 1986, with education receiving about five out of every eight dollars of aid. To facilitate understanding of differences in state aid programs and analysis of changes over time, the study provides comparative data for all states. It also briefly describes major state aid initiatives following the termination of federal revenue sharing.
