Center on Budget and Policy Priorities

For Support Of The Anti-austerity And Economic Case For The Expanded Role Of Government

The Center on Budget and Policy Priorities is a nonpartisan policy institute that advances fiscal policies to reduce poverty and inequality, expand health coverage, broaden opportunity, and promote racial equity. The grant will support analytic and communications work to make the affirmative case for expanding public investments while pushing back against austerity and anti-tax arguments that the United States is unable to afford these investments. In coming years, the nation must both address the current health and economic crisis and make permanent policy advances that promote economic and racial justice. Success will depend on helping policymakers and the public understand the economic arguments for investment and against austerity.

The Center also examines the short- and long-term impacts of proposed policies on the health of the economy and the soundness of federal and state budgets. This grant would continue the Foundation’s support, which began in 2004.
