Massachusetts Budget and Policy Center Inc. (MassBudget)

aka MassBudget   |   Boston, MA   |  http://www.massbudget.org

Mission

MassBudget produces non-partisan policy research, analysis, and data-driven recommendations focused on improving the lives of low- and middle-income children and adults, strengthening our state's economy, and enhancing the quality of life in Massachusetts. Our work addresses how our Commonwealth can achieve these objectives while also maintaining fiscal stability through an adequate, fair, and efficient tax system. We recognize that accomplishing these goals depends on an effective government in which everyone is empowered to participate. Toward this end, MassBudget works towards government transparency and makes our research as accessible as possible, particularly to those who have been left on the sidelines of past policy debates.

Budget Monitor

MassBudget's work helps everyone who wants to participate in public debates on the state budget, taxes and related policy issues to be able to do so effectively. Among the dozens of publications we produce each year, our widely-read Budget Monitors provide detailed, timely information about how programs and services fare at each stage of the state's budget debate, as well as discussions of revenue patterns and other big-picture fiscal issues. Groups find them very useful, along with our accessible Budget Browser tool, and other budget resources on our site.
