Our Partners


The Budget & Policy Center’s impact is strengthened by our affiliations with these highly respected and influential networks:

State Priorities Partnership – A network of more than 40 state-based organizations coordinated by the Center and Budget and Policy Priorities that works to reduce poverty and inequality by making sure states have the resources they need through an accountable budget process

Economic Analysis and Research Network (EARN) – A network of state and regional research and advocacy organizations focused on advancing progressive economic policies, coordinated by the Economic Policy Institute

Our Partnerships

We are proud to be a KIDS COUNT in Washington partner organization, in collaboration with the Children’s Alliance. As part of the national KIDS COUNT network – and funded by the Annie E. Casey Foundation – KIDS COUNT in Washington gathers and analyzes data on how kids are doing in our state, then turns that information into action on issues like poverty, health care, and education.

And we are a proud founding member of All In For Washington, a statewide effort to clean up the tax code so that all communities in Washington thrive. All In was built on the belief that we can do great things when we all chip in our resources together to achieve the things we could never accomplish alone.
