Overview
The Center on Budget and Policy Priorities is one of the nation’s premier policy organizations working at the federal and state levels on fiscal policy and public programs that affect low- and moderate-income families and individuals. It conducts nonpartisan research and analysis to help shape public debates and ensure that policymakers and the public consider the needs of those communities, whose voices are too often unheard. The Center also develops policy options to alleviate poverty in the United States, and it examines the short- and long-term impacts of proposed policies on the health of the economy and the soundness of federal and state budgets. The Foundation has funded the Center since 2004, and we see it serving a particularly important role during the current difficult economic times.
