About this grant
The Ford, Casey, and Mott foundations created the State Fiscal Analysis Initiative in 1992 in order to build state capacity for timely, credible, and accessible tax and budget analysis on behalf of low- and middle-income families. The continued devolution of funds and decisionmaking responsibility to the states heightens the need for analyses of fiscal and budget policies at the state level. Over the last six years, the grantee’s Michigan Budget and Tax Policy Project has become recognized as an authoritative source of information and analysis on state fiscal issues, particularly as they affect low-income populations. Related to this project is a grant to the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities, which provides technical assistance to all the state organizations participating in this initiative.
