About this grant

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.
