Montana Budget and Policy Center

The Montana Budget and Policy Center (MBPC) is a nonprofit organization created in 2008 to provide in-depth research and analysis on budget, tax, and economic issues.

Our core focus is publishing credible, timely, and easy-to-understand reports on the fiscal policies that most impact low and moderate income Montanans. Our research and analysis then informs public policy, the media and the broader public.

Why tax and budget policy? We envision an economically vibrant future in which all Montanans have a fair opportunity to work, learn and improve their lives. That’s why we seek to engage, include and elevate the voices of those sometimes left out of conversations about economic policies, including women, American Indians, low-income veterans and others.
