About

Who We Are

For more than 20 years, the Minnesota Budget Project has identified and advanced policy solutions so that opportunity and economic security are within reach for all Minnesotans, regardless of who they are or where they live. We are a nonpartisan initiative of the Minnesota Council of Nonprofits.

How We Do Our Work

Mission

Through research, advocacy and strategic communications, we pursue four long-term goals for Minnesota:

  • A fair tax system that raises enough revenue to sustainably fund our priorities as a state;
  • Investment in public services that expand opportunity and improve the economic well-being of lower-income Minnesotans;
  • Policies that help Minnesotans succeed in the workplace and the marketplace so that economic security and opportunity is available to all; and
  • A sound budget process characterized by sustainable budget choices, the absence of arbitrary spending caps and formulas, and meaningful opportunities for participation.
