Policy and Research

Government policy and spending decisions can have a big impact on your nonprofit’s operating environment and on the health of the communities you serve. At IFF, we engage in public policy to make sure that these decisions are based on solid data, knowledge of the nonprofit sector, and hands-on experience in community development.

For nonprofits, foundations, and government agencies, we also provide data and analysis to help you make better decisions about resource allocation and real estate investment. Our goal is to ensure that your investments and programs are targeted to where they are needed most.

We are national leaders in needs assessments that measure the supply of and demand for quality schools in urban school districts. Our policy and research initiatives have informed state and local government efforts to expand quality child care in high-need areas, and led to new models for providing affordable, community-integrated housing to low-income persons with disabilities.
