Job Number:
Organization: Center on Budget and Policy Priorities
Posted: 10/30/2017
Type: Full-Time
Classification: Health Policy
Industry: Non Profit / NGO

Position Description: The Center on Budget and Policy Priorities, a high-caliber strategic policy organization that informs and shapes public policies to reduce poverty, promote equity, and build opportunity, seeks a policy analyst or senior policy analyst to help design and lead a new initiative to improve population health and advance equity through better state budgeting and tax policies.

States and localities collect more than one-third of all taxes in the U.S. and spend half of all domestic public-sector dollars. While core state investments that produce better health outcomes are currently threatened by state budget shortfalls and federal policy decisions, this is also a moment in which states can step forward as beacons of sensible, forward-looking policy.

In this high-stakes environment, the State Priorities Partnership (SPP) - the network of independent state policy organizations founded and coordinated by CBPP - is advancing racial, social, and economic justice, which are among the foundations for a strong culture of health.

The analyst will be the primary staff person on a new initiative whose objectives include improving understanding of the link between state budget and tax decisions and population health, including the secondary effects of federal decisions, and preserving or expanding state investments in public programs that promote health, particularly for low-income residents.

The analyst will coordinate funding and technical support for SPP groups working toward these objectives in the states; conduct analyses on the impact of state budget and tax decisions on population health and equity; design and organize trainings and technical assistance; disseminate tools and best practices; and identify and disseminate studies that describe the impact of state budgetary decisions on population health. In addition, a senior analyst in this role will have significant responsibility for designing an overall workplan and individual products.

Qualifications: A bachelor’s degree in a relevant field, such as public policy, public health, economics, or sociology, is required. Graduate degree strongly preferred. Senior policy analyst: At least seven years’ experience working on (a) tax and budget issues at the state or federal level as legislative staff, executive branch staff, and/or as an independent researcher or advocate; and/or (b) population health issues at the state or federal level. Experience in both areas preferred. Policy analyst: At least four years’ experience in either of the above areas. A graduate degree may be substituted for two years’ work experience. Demonstrated skill/experience in developing state-level strategies to improve public policies. A demonstrated capacity to organize complex projects, especially those involving multiple stakeholders, and keep them on track. Excellent communications skills, including strong writing and interpersonal skills. Strong quantitative and analytic skills, including a facility with spreadsheets and commitment to accuracy. Demonstrated skill/experience in analyzing complex fiscal policy issues, explaining those issues (both in writing and orally) to broader audiences, and ideally explaining the impact of those issues on population health. A demonstrated commitment to reducing poverty and other social and economic inequities. Some travel is required. Title and salary commensurate with experience. Excellent benefits including health insurance, dental coverage, vision coverage, life and long- term disability insurance, retirement benefits, flexible spending accounts and generous vacation, sick leave, and holiday schedules.
