About SFAI

The State Fiscal Analysis Initiative brings together nonpartisan, independent, nonprofit organizations in each of 40 states and the District of Columbia. They share a commitment to rigorous policy analysis, responsible budget and tax policies, and a particular focus on the needs of low- and moderate-income families.

Since launching in 1993 in 11 states, SFAI has grown steadily. The 41 states in SFAI include 86 percent of the nationís population.

Financial support for SFAI organizations comes principally from local and regional foundations, individual donors, and several national foundations including the Annie E. Casey Foundation, the Charles Stewart Mott Foundation, the Ford Foundation, the Open Society Foundations, the Stoneman Family Foundation, and the W.K. Kellogg Foundation.

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