The Open Philanthropy Project recommended an exit grant of $250,000 to the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities (CBPP) to support the Full Employment Project. This is a renewal of our July 2016 grant and falls within our focus area of macroeconomic stabilization policy. We continue to think the Project’s work is important but do not have a clear sense of how much of a difference marginal funding makes in driving that work forward. This grant will bring us to five years of supporting the Full Employment Project, and at this point we want to take the opportunity to step back and see if other funders may be interested in supporting the Project.
