The Center on Budget and Policy Priorities (CBPP) is one of the nation’s leading nonprofits working on public policy issues affecting low-income families and individuals. It has a national reputation for conducting rigorous research and analysis, developing policy ideas and strategies, shaping a broad array of policy debates at the federal and state levels, and influencing policy outcomes. It works on budget and tax policy, health care, and a range of programs important to low-income people. The Center’s funding comes from private foundations and individuals.
The Housing Policy division works with state and local housing agencies and advocates to improve the effectiveness of federal low-income housing programs — particularly the Housing Choice Voucher program. The Housing intern performs in-depth analyses of research reports and program data on relevant policy issues. The intern also performs a variety of other tasks, including attending and reporting on hearings, conferences, and meetings.
- Candidates should have a strong interest in housing policy, fair housing, or homelessness issues
- Work or volunteer experience with housing and/or homelessness issues a plus
- Strong research and written communication skills
- Facility with Excel or Stata strongly preferred
- Education: Graduate student, PhD students, or recent graduates. Prior coursework in econometrics, research methods, and statistics highly desirable
Successful interns will have a commitment to the Center’s mission to improve the well-being of low- and moderate-income people and advance racial equity as part of the Center’s work.
To expand the diversity of voices that speak with authority in federal and state policy debates, the Center’s internship program identifies highly motivated candidates — with particular attention to candidates having experience with communities that are underrepresented in policy debates — with a demonstrated interest in working on public policies that affect low-income and diverse communities and have implications for racial equity.
International students are welcome to apply. The Center does not provide financial sponsorship for visas or work permits. You must have documentation of work authorization for the U.S. AND a U.S. Social Security number to be employed by the Center. (Please indicate that you are an international student on the application form.)
