The Wisconsin Budget Project is an initiative of the Wisconsin Council on Children and Families engaged in analysis and education on state budget and tax issues, particularly those relating to low- and moderate-income families. The Budget Project seeks to broaden the debate on budget and tax policy through public education and by encouraging civic engagement on these issues.
Mission and History
The Wisconsin Budget Project, launched in 1999, is part of the State Fiscal Analysis Initiative (SFAI), a network of independent, nonpartisan, nonprofits in 32 states engaged in similar work across the country. The SFAI network is coordinated by the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities, a national think tank focusing on tax and budget policy issues.
