Publication date:

At the 2017 Public Policy Conference, the SCG community came together with leaders from across our region, our state, and our country to examine new and urgent questions: What does this new political landscape mean for our work? What changes can we expect in federal and state budgets--and in the laws of our country? How will these changes affect what we can do? How will they affect the communities we support?

Publication date:

With a dimmer view on the state’s fiscal health, the budget proposes to address a projected $1.6 billion deficit. This deficit is driven by a slower growth in revenues, predominantly in the state’s three primary revenue sources: income, sales, and corporate taxes.

Publication date: 
04/01/2014

Hydraulic fracturing, commonly referred to as fracking, is a process used in natural gas and oil drilling. New technology now allows drilling from previously inaccessible and unconventional sources, particularly shale. This has led to a surge in U.S. natural gas operations that already has had significant economic, social, environmental and health impacts. Drilling Deeper is a report designed to help grantmakers understand this complex issue and to provide an overview of funding priorities and challenges.
