Many of you who have followed the work of OK Policy will know that our model for top-quality, credible, and timely research is the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities, a Washington-based policy organization that works at the federal and state levels on fiscal policy and public programs that affect low- and moderate-income families and individuals. The Center has just redesigned its website and I encourage you to check it out. The site includes a new feature, the myCenter account, which allows you to personalize the content you receive through their site and receive e-mail alerts according to your interests.
In addition to emerging research on state fiscal woes, the federal budget, cap-and-trade proposals, and other timely subjects, the Center also has an unparalleled set of papers that provide introductory overviews of federal budget and tax policy and major safety net programs. If you’ve always wanted to know more about Section 8 housing, TANF, or the earned income tax credit but didn’t know where to look, this is the place.
