About this grant

This is one of ten grants recommended to state organizations to participate in the State Fiscal Analysis Initiative. The Ford, Annie E. Casey, and Mott Foundations created the initiative in 1992 in order to build capacity for timely, credible, and accessible tax and budget analysis on behalf of low- and middle-income families. The Enterprise Corporation of the Delta joined the initiative in 2007 and has established itself as a source of credible information on budget and tax policy as well as broader economic issues in the state of Mississippi. Activities planned for the renewal grant period include research, community outreach, and strategic communications efforts. Related to this project is a grant to the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities, which provides technical assistance to all 36 organizations participating in this initiative.
