Overview
The Hutchins Center at Brookings and The Woodrow Wilson Center will update and expand dissemination of Budget Hero, an interactive, online game that helps citizens and policymakers better understand difficult federal budget choices. The three-year project will span the policy debates of the 2016 election cycle and the 115th Congress and help build consensus about complex budget issues. Strictly nonpartisan in approach, Budget Hero uses Congressional Budget Office baselines and data to allow players to test various solutions and see the short- and long-term budget impact. Enhanced design, mobile versions, expanded content, and wider outreach are features of the proposed Budget Hero version 3.0.
