Income redistribution effects of waste water treatment grants were estimated for each state in a federal program. The impact of progressive income taxes and grant formulae, which were intended to favor states with low income per capita, were shown to have little net redistribution effects in fact. High per capita income states still were treated favorably in most cases because they also had high population bases.
