A website to track spending from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) shows that Colorado has received millions in funding or grants in zip codes that are erroneous or don't belong in Colorado.
Recovery.gov provides a breakout of all Colorado spending by zip code. For example, the breakout shows that zip code 87420 has received $5,267,621 in ARRA funds. That zip code corresponds to Shiprock, New Mexico. Also, the Colorado breakout shows over $1.5 million spent in the state in zip code 50901. That zip code not only is not in the state, but the USPS also says the zip code does not exist at all.
