Safety Net Policy Advocate (Louisiana Budget Project)
The Louisiana Budget Project seeks someone to lead our research into clients’ experiences of safety-net programs, and advocate for policy improvements that reduce barriers to program access for Louisianans. This is an exciting opportunity for someone with top-notch research, analysis and writing skills, a deep familiarity with government safety-net programs, and a desire to strengthen these programs by elevating the voices of people who receive public benefits. The successful candidate will have a commitment to advancing racial and economic equity, strong interpersonal skills, and experience in public policy research and analysis. Lived experience with safety-net programs a plus.
The Louisiana Budget Project is an independent, 501c(3) nonprofit research and advocacy organization that monitors and reports on policies that affect low- to moderate-income Louisianans. We work collaboratively with communities and partner organizations to inform policy debates across a wide range of areas – including state budget, revenue, social and economic issues – with an eye to reducing poverty, promoting racial equity and widespread economic prosperity that allows all citizens to reach their highest potential.
