Type of SupportGeneral Support/Program
The International Budget Partnership (IBP) collaborates with civil society around the world to analyze and influence public budgets to reduce poverty and improve governance. After fifteen years of steady growth and a strong track record of impact, the IBP is gearing up to significantly expand its support to partner organizations, as well as its own research, analysis, and advocacy to promote budget transparency. During this grant period, the IBP will lay the groundwork to launch a new five-year strategy in 2014. This will include reevaluating its institutional status and relationship to the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities, putting in place the necessary financial and administrative systems to expand and deepen its re-granting effort, and further developing its approach to focus countries. IBP will continue to implement the Open Budget Index, the Global Initiative for Fiscal Transparency, and research on the impact of civil society budget work.

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.
