About Us

The California Budget & Policy Center (formerly the California Budget Project) engages in independent fiscal and policy analysis and public education with the goal of improving public policies affecting the economic and social well-being of low- and middle-income Californians. 

Our vision is of a California where everyone has the opportunity to participate fully in the state’s economic, social, and political life. This will require our state to make smart policy choices and the right kinds of public investments today, so we can: create a world-class system of education, from preschool up through college and beyond, help bring a range of employment and housing options within reach of individuals and families, enable communities to be safe and healthy, and provide a strong safety-net for individuals and families who are struggling to find work or make ends meet.
