Job recovery is perhaps the most critical issue facing our nation today. With fewer jobs and a stalled economy, less federal and state funding is available for supporting education, social services, infrastructure, and human needs. In fact, 48 states are dealing with budget deficits totaling $196 billion this year, and $180 billion in FY2011.
National Priorities Project (NPP) is a 501(c)(3) research organization that analyzes and clarifies federal data so that people can understand and influence how their tax dollars are spent. Located in Northampton, MA, since 1983, NPP focuses on the impact of federal spending and other policies at the national, state, congressional district and local levels. Find out more at our website.
