The Center on Budget and Policy Priorities, a national strategic policy organization that informs and shapes public policies to reduce poverty, promote equity, and build opportunity, seeks a Project Associate to support several ongoing initiatives within its State Fiscal Policy (SFP) division. These include (but are not limited to) initiatives to elevate the effects of state fiscal policy on health outcomes and health equity, and to help state-based policy and immigrants’ rights groups conduct fiscal and economic analyses that inform the debate around immigration issues.
SFP works to ensure that all communities are economically secure and have the opportunity to thrive through well-designed tax and budget policies. SFP analyzes fiscal policy developments and proposals, develops policy ideas, and advances improvements through research, communications, and campaign strategies.
