Position Announcement: State-Tribal Policy Outreach Coordinator

Apr 08, 2019

Organizational, Project, and Position Background

Founded in 2008, 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.

In 2011, MBPC established a special focus on State-Tribal policy to promote sound fiscal and budget policy that can help reverse the history of economic injustice that has led many American Indians to unacceptable levels of poverty, unemployment, and poor health. Our work aims to inform policymakers on how tax and budget choices affect Indian Country, and to increase participation among American Indians in advocacy for sufficient investment in the state budget.

As a part of this effort, MBPC is opening a new position – State-Tribal Policy Outreach Coordinator - to conduct outreach to tribal communities and coordinate efforts on the state fiscal issues and policies that have an impact on Indian Country in Montana.
