Grants to this Grantee
for general operating support  
The Center on Budget and Policy Priorities is one of the nation’s premier think tanks working at the federal and state levels on fiscal policy and public programs that affect low- and moderate-income families and individuals. The Center conducts nonpartisan research and analysis to help inform public debates and ensure that policy makers and the public consider the needs of those communities whose voices are too often unheard. 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.
for the International Budget Partnership  
This grant would provide program support to the International Budget Partnership for their continued work measuring budget transparency in 100 countries, as well as providing training and technical assistance to local organizations on how to incorporate budget analysis into their advocacy campaigns.
