To search for a specific location, begin typing. To search for a congressional district, follow the formatting of number first (include leading zeros), space, hyphen, space, then state code. For example, to search for the first congressional district in Virginia, type 01 – VA. You can also choose from suggested results by typing a few characters in the box – suggested results will populate in the drop-down below the search box. You can also click the down-arrow to the left of the search box to narrow your search to a specific location category.

  • Use the Home button to reset the map to its default view.
  • Click on “Find my location” to allow the map to zoom to a map view based on your physical location.
  • Use the +/- icons to zoom in and out, or use your mouse wheel.

Keep in mind, this is not a general, keyword search.

Viewing Award Details

Click on a dot on the map to see more details. Due to the high concentration of awards in some areas, dots on the Pandemic Response Funding and Paycheck Protection Program may represent summary award data, not individual awards.
In each map, you have the option of turning the dots that represent awards on or off.

Tips for the Pandemic Response Funding map

In the Data Sets drop-down, select an award type in the Obligated or Spending categories.
