Who We Are
The Colorado Fiscal Institute provides credible, independent and accessible information and analysis of fiscal and economic issues facing Colorado. Our aim is to inform and influence policy debates and contribute to sound decisions that improve the well-being of individuals, communities and the state as a whole.
What We Do:
Through high quality research, strategic communications, statewide education and advocacy, the Colorado Fiscal Institute addresses one of the most pressing issues of our time: how to promote widespread prosperity. CFI uniquely focuses on the fiscal and economic implications of policy affecting working families as well as how public resources are allocated to meet public needs. Too often, what things cost and how they will be paid for are secondary considerations. At CFI, who pays for services, the methods used to raise revenue, the economic impact of public investments and the role of public services on the economy, communities and individuals are our top priorities.
In Colorado, with TABOR and related constitutional provisions, analyzing how resources are raised and allocated is critically important to the state’s future. CFI’s work supports the efforts of a range of advocacy organizations with expertise in particular policy areas to develop stronger voices for expanding the middle class and promoting economic prosperity.
Together, our team carries out the mission of the organization to improve the well-being of individuals, communities and the state as a whole.
