Center on Budget and Policy Priorities — Automatic Stabilizers

Center on Budget and Policy Priorities
Award Date:
To support work on automatic stabilizers.

The Open Philanthropy Project recommended a grant of $100,000 to the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities (CBPP) to support work on enhancing automatic fiscal stabilizers. Automatic fiscal stabilizers are taxes and government programs that respond automatically to changing economic conditions, and do not require additional Congressional action. They are important for mitigating the effects of economic downturns.

This falls within Open Philanthropy's focus area of macroeconomic stabilization policy.
