The report hasn’t been easy to compile as many public records requests have been turned down so far.
Even so the Boston Globe has uncovered over $100,000 in public assistance given the men accused of the Boston Marathon bombings between 2010 and 2012.
The Tsarnaev brothers were given food stamps and money for cash and housing.
One person close to the story told the Globe "the breadth of the benefits the family was receiving was stunning."
The details are coming out as the state's House Post Audit and Oversight Committee sorts through some 500 documents from the state.
Committee chairmana Representative David Linsky said the trail is being followed.
"I can assure members of the public that this committee will actively review every single piece of information we can find, because clearly the public has a substantial right to know what benefits, if any, this family or individuals accused of some horrific crimes were receiving."
