About FPC

What We Do

The Fiscal Policy Center provides timely, credible, and accessible information and analysis on state budget and tax policy — including impacts on education, health care, human services, and family economic security.

The FPC publishes policy reports, issue briefs, policy bulletins, and fact sheets to help inform policymakers, advocacy groups, the media, and the broader public on state budget and policy issues. FPC also monitors federal policies that impact children, families, and the state budget in Illinois.

State Priorities Partnership

The Fiscal Policy Center is a member of the State Priorities Partnership (SPP), a network of more than 40 state-level nonpartisan, independent, nonprofit organizations that are engaged in rigorous policy analysis, responsible budget and tax policies, and addressing the needs of low- and moderate-income families.

SPP is coordinated by the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities, a Washington, D.C.-based research organization and strategic policy institute that works on a range of federal and state issues.

Major Funders

The FPC is funded by the Annie E. Casey Foundation, the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities, and the Chicago Community Trust. We thank our funders for their support but acknowledge our findings and conclusions do not necessarily reflect the views of these organizations.
