This grant provides ongoing support for Budgeting for National Priorities, a project of the Brookings Institution. The project seeks to convince political leaders in Washington and the general public of the need to restore fiscal discipline in ways that result in: 1) an efficient and effective government whose benefits and costs are shared fairly; and 2) a strong economy whose growth potential is enhanced by public and private investments. To accomplish these goals, the grantee conducts research, policy analyses, and outreach activities, all aimed at defining the magnitude of the federal deficit problem and producing policy solutions that will attract the attention of federal policymakers. During the past four years, the project has produced a range of educational and policy materials that received extensive attention by the media, policymakers, and other influential stakeholders. Located in Washington, DC, the Brookings Institution is widely recognized and valued as a nonpartisan, balanced source of policy research and analysis.
This grant provides ongoing support to the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities for the State Fiscal and Low-Income Initiatives Project. The overall goal of this project is to conduct strategic analysis of federal and state budget priorities and fiscal policies, and programs that impact low-income populations. This grant will also support the center's continued work to promote policy initiatives, such as Earned Income Tax Credit, which help low-income working families. To accomplish these goals, the center will: monitor changes to the social safety net; prepare strategy papers and analyses of fiscal policies; facilitate networking at the state and local level for low-income advocates; and provide strategic and technical assistance to state and local policymakers, program administrators, and nonprofit organizations working on issues affecting low-income families. Located in Washington, D.C., the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities is one of the premiere policy research institutions in the U.S.
