Our programs

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Federal and state fiscal issues

We analyze the federal budget, budget proposals, and long-term budget trends, focusing especially on programs designed to promote economic and health security and broaden opportunity. Our tax policy work focuses on revenue adequacy, fairness, racial equity, and tax compliance, as well as the impact of tax policies on the economy. We also work on issues related to the federal budget process and its rules, which can have a significant effect on the policymaking process.

By coordinating and supporting the State Priorities Partnership, we help design and promote state policies that make states more inclusive and prosperous places to live, work, and invest. This includes state policies that affect taxes, budgets, poverty, racial and gender equity, health care, education, wages, economic development, immigration, criminal justice, and more.

Population(s) Served
Economically disadvantaged people

We design and promote policies to make affordable, comprehensive, high-quality health coverage available to everyone, with a focus on reducing coverage disparities across lines of race, ethnicity, immigration status, and income. This includes working to improve Medicaid’s effectiveness and reach, provide coverage to low-income people in states that have refused to adopt the ACA Medicaid expansion, make ACA marketplace coverage more affordable, advance health equity, make it easier for people to enroll in and maintain Medicaid and marketplace coverage, and improve Medicare.

Population(s) Served
Economically disadvantaged people
Families
Immigrants and migrants

We work to highlight the benefits of the federal Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) and Child Tax Credit, strengthen the credits to better support lower-paid workers and families with children, and ensure eligible workers and families receive them. We also work to expand state-level refundable tax credits and promote improvements in the reach and scope of those credits.

Population(s) Served
Economically disadvantaged people
Families

We design and promote federal and state policies to make the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) stronger and more accessible so that it does more to reduce food insecurity, which is particularly prevalent among households of color. This includes work on program rules and implementation. We also work to ensure that low-income families with pregnant or postpartum individuals or young children benefit from WIC’s proven nutrition, health, and developmental benefits. And we advance policies that make school meal programs more accessible to low-income children during the school year and in the summer.

Population(s) Served
Economically disadvantaged people
Children and youth

We research and analyze issues related to ensuring that families have adequate income to meet their basic needs and provide a foundation for them to thrive. This includes designing and promoting federal and state policies to improve the Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) program, increase the amount of child support paid directly to families, increase opportunities for people to increase their education and skills, and expand the availability of subsidized jobs for unemployed individuals.

Population(s) Served
Economically disadvantaged people
Families

We design and promote policies to help people with low incomes afford housing. We focus on strengthening rental assistance programs to reduce poverty, housing instability, and homelessness and promote real housing choice for low-income households — including households of color, who have long faced discriminatory housing policies.

Population(s) Served
Economically disadvantaged people

We analyze trends in poverty, income, and inequality at both the national and state levels, including trends by race and ethnicity, and we examine the effectiveness of public programs in building economic security and opportunity. We also study economic trends — such as trends in economic growth, who shares in that growth, employment and wages, and inflation — and consider how those trends should inform policy.

Population(s) Served
Economically disadvantaged people

We examine Social Security’s effects on poverty and on the economic status of people by race, ethnicity, gender, and age. We also examine proposed changes to Social Security’s benefits and financing structure to determine their likely impact on the program’s effectiveness in promoting economic security, reducing racial disparities, and strengthening its long-term financial footing. In addition, we conduct analysis and promote policies to strengthen the Supplemental Security Income program, which provides income assistance to older people and people with disabilities.

Population(s) Served
Economically disadvantaged people
Families

We work on issues at the intersection of immigration policy and economic and health security policy, including improving access to supports such as health coverage and nutrition assistance for immigrants and their family members. We also analyze and highlight immigrants’ contributions to the nation and promote policies that can help them thrive.

Population(s) Served
Immigrants and migrants
Economically disadvantaged people
Families

We examine the structural deficiencies in the unemployment insurance program and promote program improvements to ensure that more workers get needed help when they lose a job and that the benefits they receive are adequate.
