About this grant
This is one of ten grants recommended to state organizations participating in the State Fiscal Analysis Initiative. The Ford, Annie E. Casey, and Mott Foundations created the 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 North Carolina Justice Center joined this effort in 1994 and is recognized throughout the state as the leading nongovernmental voice on state budget and tax policy matters. During this renewal grant period, the North Carolina Justice Center will prepare and disseminate analyses on a range of state fiscal issues, with a particular emphasis on state and local tax policies and income support programs. Other activities planned for the grant period include community outreach and strategic communications. 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 the initiative.
