Domestic Public Policy

Trust Funds Solutions Initiative

Grant Year: 2021


Marc Goldwein will lead an effort to examine how policymakers could best address looming shortfalls in three of the federal government’s trust funds in order to put the U.S. government’s finances on a sustainable path. He will undertake research and analysis related to the federal trust funds that provide support for retirees, disabled persons, and infrastructure spending; conduct outreach to inform policymakers and the public about the need for reform; and work with members of Congress interested in putting forth such solutions. The project’s findings will appear in a series of reports and policy briefs.
