    Missouri Budget Project improves the quality of life for all Missourians by informing public policy decisions through objective research and analysis of state budget, tax and economic issues.

    The Missouri Budget Project is a nonprofit, objective, public policy analysis organization that provides independent research on complex state policy issues and how they impact all Missourians. The Missouri Budget Project works to enhance the ability of all Missourians to participate in the public debate and ensure that advocates, policy makers and the public have the information needed to create sound fiscal policies.

    The Missouri Budget Project advocates in favor of fiscally responsible public policies that advance the well being of all Missourians, particularly our most vulnerable families who too often don’t have a voice in policy decisions.
