The Louisiana Budget Project (LBP) monitors and reports on public policy and how it affects Louisiana’s low- to moderate-income families. We believe that the lives of Louisianans can be improved through profound change in public policy, brought about by:
1) creating a deeper understanding of the state budget and budget-related issues;
2) looking at the big picture of how the budget impacts citizens;
3) encouraging citizens to be vocal about budget issues that are important to them;
4) providing insight and leadership to drive the policy debate.
LBP was formed in 2006 as an initiative of the Louisiana Association of Nonprofit Organizations, and became a stand-alone organization in 2013. LBP is a member of the State Priorities Partnership, a network of state-level policy organizations coordinated by the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities.Visit Website
