50 States Finance Project

Every three years, NEFA supports the publication of a comprehensive overview of the school funding mechanisms for each of the 50 states, US Territories, and Indian Country, written by NEFA members. This work is supplemented annually by the State of the States reports in the Journal of Education Finance, found HERE. Together, the 50 state project and the State of the States project collaboratively provide insight into the laws and policies surrounding school finance in the US states, US territories, and independent Indian tribal areas. Thus, NEFA is the one-stop resource for administrators, educators, and policymakers seeking to understand how school finance operates (copies of the book can be found HERE).
