Overview
The Roosevelt Institute brings together thousands of policy and thought leaders — from emerging voices in every state to Nobel laureate economists — to reimagine the rules. Over the last year, Roosevelt has undertaken an intensive effort to better understand how neoliberal belief systems shape today’s economy and society, and chart viable alternatives. Now, Roosevelt is ready to integrate this learning into all aspects of its work. The organization will invest in both internal capacity — research, policy analysis, communications, and outreach — and external partnership work, convening key leaders who will be critical to building consensus and ultimately driving a worldview shift away from neoliberalism toward sustainable systems and institutional change.

Grants to this Grantee
for general operating support  
The Roosevelt Institute works to advance an economic agenda that puts families and workers first — one that tackles concentrated wealth and power, strengthens the countervailing power of workers and communities, and reimagines public power as essential to supporting economic security and shared prosperity in ways that markets, when left alone, never will. This work is especially critical in this moment of crisis, which calls for both immediate relief and for long-term structural solutions. By combining thoughtful research and analysis with strategic communications and partnerships, Roosevelt develops and promotes new economic thinking and policy ideas aimed at building toward a more resilient, just, and sustainable future.
for the climate finance regulatory project  
The Roosevelt Institute’s climate economics program builds support among climate and economic policy groups for regulatory policies that shape private investment in large-scale rapid decarbonization of the U.S. economy, while building good jobs and equity. A key plank of this program focuses on regulatory rules and structures — including SEC reforms, Federal Reserve policy, and carbon accounting rules — that can deter private investment in carbon-intensive activities and promote private investment in green industry.
