Federal dollars can be seen everywhere in Colorado: paving winding mountain roads, supporting federal research facilities, and growing in rolling fields of grain. The Consolidated Federal Funds Report, a U.S. Census Bureau document detailing federal spending at the state and county level, groups the money paid out by the federal government into six categories: direct payments for individuals (retirement and disability only), direct payments for individuals (other than retirement and disability), direct payments other than for individuals, grants, procurement contracts, and salaries and wages. (Note: Other reported federal commitments include loans and insurance.)
