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

Workforce Reform

Unnecessary local and state regulations make it difficult for people to get a job and earn a living. To make matters worse, these barriers to work disproportionately impact low-income individuals—those who need opportunity the most. In addition, while there are a growing number of non-traditional paths to well-paying jobs, students and parents aren't always aware of these options, making economic mobility difficult.

OSP advocates for proven reforms to break down barriers to work, widen pathways to well-paying jobs, and help people find meaningful work across a variety of industries.

Population(s) Served
Economically disadvantaged people

Too often, welfare programs trap able-bodied adults into a cycle of government dependency when they could be working. This not only leaves individuals and families behind, but it also cuts into funding for the truly needy and other priorities like education, public safety, and infrastructure.

OSP advocates for reforms to promote prosperity through work, help individuals break the cycle of government dependency, and preserve resources for the truly needy.

Population(s) Served

Every day, Americans across the country are surprised by big medical bills. Even more struggle with rising premiums. And middle-aged adults are concerned that changes to Medicaid could impact their parents' health care and their own in retirement years. These are the problems that keep Americans up at night.

OSP advocates for health care reforms that respond to these issues, helping Americans receive access to lower-cost, higher-quality health insurance.

Balance sheet

Fiscal Year: Jan 01 - Dec 31

SOURCE: IRS Form 990 info

The balance sheet gives a snapshot of the financial health of an organization at a particular point in time. An organization's total assets should generally exceed its total liabilities, or it cannot survive long, but the types of assets and liabilities must also be considered. For instance, an organization's current assets (cash, receivables, securities, etc.) should be sufficient to cover its current liabilities (payables, deferred revenue, current year loan, and note payments). Otherwise, the organization may face solvency problems. On the other hand, an organization whose cash and equivalents greatly exceed its current liabilities might not be putting its money to best use.
