About Us

Founded in 2015, the School and State Finance Project is a nonpartisan, nonprofit policy organization, focused on education funding and state finance issues, with a commitment to providing independent analysis, building public knowledge, improving transparency, and developing fair, sustainable solutions.

The goals of the School and State Finance Project are to:

  • Serve as an independent and trustworthy source of high-quality research and analysis about Connecticut’s education finance policies and state budget.
  • Improve transparency around Connecticut’s education and state finances by providing access to timely, accurate, and easy-to-understand data and information.
  • Build public knowledge about Connecticut’s finances, budget, and economy, and elevate conversations about how to strengthen the state’s fiscal health.
  • Increase awareness about Connecticut’s education finance system and the need for an equitable, unified funding formula that treats all students fairly and strengthens schools and communities.
  • Develop thoughtful, data-driven solutions that address Connecticut’s education funding and state finance challenges by working collaboratively with state and local policymakers, community groups and leaders, and other key stakeholders.
  • Provide technical assistance to partner organizations seeking to solve education finance-related challenges.

Although not a member-based organization, the School and State Finance Project actively works with a diverse group of stakeholders and communities across Connecticut.

The School and State Finance Project aims to serve as a trusted resource for state and local policymakers, school district officials, community leaders, and all people looking for transparent, accessible, and approachable information about education funding and state finance. The School and State Finance Project also aims to provide strategic, analytical, and operational support in collaboration with public sector and public interest organizations to advance organizational missions and improve the delivery of public services.

The School and State Finance Project is a fiscally sponsored organization of TSNE MissionWorks.
