Missouri Budget Project’s 20th anniversary affords us an opportunity to reflect on our work and its impact on Missourians and express gratitude for our partners – without whom we would not be able to succeed. Our work together is building a foundation upon which every Missourian can thrive.
Examples of MBP’s Recent Impacts
In the last five years alone, working together we’ve:
+ Expanded Medicaid, making health care coverage available for more than 340,000 Missourians.
+ Created the Missouri Working Families Tax Credit (EITC) and implemented the Wayfair Fix. Both policies will make Missouri’s tax structure a little bit fairer, particularly for the 250,000 families with 409,000 children who will benefit from the EITC.
+ Expanded Postpartum Coverage, helping thousands of moms access the care they need to thrive at parenting.
+ Leveraged billions of federal dollars for investments in Missouri, benefitting education, child care, health and mental health, senior services and infrastructure. These funds will have reverberating positive impacts for Missourians for decades to come.
+ Fought back efforts to undermine Medicaid, cut the corporate income tax, and proposals to erode our growth toward diversity, equity and inclusion.
