The Louisiana Budget Project (LBP) monitors and reports on public policy and how it affects Louisiana’s low- to moderate-income families. We believe that the lives of Louisianans can be improved through profound change in public policy, brought about by:
- creating a deeper understanding of the state budget and budget-related issues
- looking at the big picture of how the budget impacts citizens
- encouraging citizens to be vocal about budget issues that are important to them
- providing insight and leadership to drive the policy debate
LBP was formed in 2006 as an initiative of the Louisiana Association of Nonprofit Organizations, and became a stand-alone organization in 2013. LBP is a member of the State Priorities Partnership, a network of state-level policy organizations coordinated by the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities.

The Louisiana Budget Project’s vision is to make Louisiana government transparent and accountable for all Louisiana citizens.
The Louisiana Budget Project will provide sound analysis of state fiscal issues to promote economic prosperity, a rising standard of living, and the opportunity for all citizens to reach their highest potential.
