Our Vision


he Georgia Budget and Policy Institute is working to build a more inclusive economy so that everyone can participate and thrive. We believe Georgia can be a state where everyone has a chance at a decent job so they can raise a family, can go to a doctor when they get sick and attend great public schools. We offer thoughtful analysis and responsible solutions to improve the state’s budget, taxes and public policies. We are working to help Georgians reach their full potential.
