Center for Municipal Finance

Through the Center for Municipal Finance, Harris Public Policy students and faculty address the major financial issues facing state and local governments in the United States and worldwide. Some of these issues include financing infrastructure, the use of municipal bonds, privatization, pension liabilities and the efficacy of reform, tax base adequacy, and more. The center aims to rethink the practices and techniques of contemporary municipal finance to provide government services more efficiently and to manage pressing problems related to the public sector.
