A nonpartisan research and policy organization dedicated to improving the economic wellbeing of Mainers with low and moderate income.

Since 1994.

Since 1994, the Maine Center for Economic Policy has helped secure improved economic opportunity for working families by advocating for fairer tax policies, for access to education, health care, and livable wage jobs, and for critical investment in government programs and services on which Maine people rely.


The Maine Center for Economic Policy advances equity and prosperity for all Maine people through issue-based analysis, education, and advocacy.

The Maine Center for Economic Policy acknowledges that the land sharing and extending beyond Maine’s borders is occupied Wabanaki homeland. We recognize the inherent sovereignty of the Maliseet, Mi’kmaq, Passamaquoddy, and Penobscot nations, and work to build durable relationships with Wabanaki communities that respect tribal authority, culture, and traditions, and advance the cause of economic justice.
