About this grant

Funding will enable the Maine Center for Economic Policy to continue its analytical, educational, and outreach activities in order to achieve tax and budget policies and other policy changes that benefit low- and moderate-income families in the state.During the past two years, the center played an important role in informing and framing public debates on revenue and spending issues and on new and existing policy initiatives in Maine. This is one of 10 grants supporting the State Fiscal Analysis Initiative. The Maine Center for Economic Policy joined this effort in 1993. Mott has also supported the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities, which provides technical assistance and networking opportunities for the 35 state organizations participating in this initiative.
