New Hampshire Fiscal Policy Institute
Founded in 2009, the New Hampshire Fiscal Policy Institute (NHFPI) is an independent, non-profit, and non-partisan organization dedicated to exploring, developing, and promoting public policies that foster economic opportunity and prosperity for all New Hampshire residents, with an emphasis on low- and moderate-income families and individuals. NHFPI is a recognized and reliable source of information on state tax, budget, economic, and health policy matters. The organizationis in a growth-oriented phase and plays multiple roles in the state’s public life, serving as:
● A leader and a collaborator– Wehave been actively and visibly engaged in health, budget, and economic debates in New Hampshire, providing a clear, strong, and independent voice in support of policies that meet the needs of low- and moderate-income families and individuals inthe Granite State. We are seeking a leader who can guide our growth.
● A communicator – Our Common Centsblog keeps policymakers, the press, and the public apprised of state budget and policy matters. Our briefings inform legislators, other policy decision makers and advocates on complex, pressing issues affecting low- and moderate-income families in New Hampshire.
● An analyst and an advocate– We are the only statewide nonprofit organization that offers in-depth analysis of state budget and policy issues and actively advocates in support of policies that improve the lives of Granite Staters.
● A convener– Our annual Budget and Policy Conference brings together elected officials, administrators, business and community leaders, and academic experts to identify needs and shape upcoming debates.
NHFPI is supported by the Annie E. Casey Foundation, the Endowment for Health, the New Hampshire Charitable Foundation, and private donations. Two national networks comprised of state-level policy research organizations, the State Priorities Partnership and the Economic Analysis and Research Network, are regular collaborators.
