The Mission of The Montana Budget and Policy Center (MBPC) is to advance responsible tax, budget, and economic policies through credible research and analysis in order to promote opportunity and fairness for all Montanans. MBPC fulfills this mission by providing credible research and analysis on state fiscal issues to legislators, tribal leaders, advocates, the public and the media.
MBPC is based in Helena, but our work is statewide. MBPC also conducts its research with a particular lens on issues impacting American Indians and Indian Country.
After completing the successful campaign to expand health care coverage to low-income Montanans, MBPC will be turning it’s work to other policies to help working families, including paid family leave and a state earned income credit.
