National Priorities Project makes our complex federal budget transparent and accessible so people can exercise their right and responsibility to oversee and influence how their tax dollars are spent.
The Rockefeller Brothers Fund has supported the work of National Priorities Project for many years, because NPP engages ordinary citizens with accessible information about the Federal Budget. NPP gives people both the tools and the skills to roll up their sleeves and get involved with shaping our nation's budget to reflect their values. NPP fulfills the Fund's belief that for democracy to flourish and deliver on its promises its citizens must be engaged, empowered, and assertive, and institutions of governance must be inclusive, transparent, accountable, and responsive.
