The Lincoln Institute of Land Policy invites applications from academic researchers working on issues related to Municipal Fiscal Health

Lincoln Institute of Land Policy
The Lincoln Institute of Land Policy cordially invites applications from academic researchers working on issues related to Municipal Fiscal Health. The ability of local governments to provide vital public goods and services to their citizens, and to prepare for an urban future, depends greatly on their fiscal situation. In cities and towns around the world, diminishing revenues, the increasing costs of providing public goods and services, mounting historical obligations, and increasing responsibilities imposed both by higher-level governments and local citizens join to place considerable stress on the fiscal health of municipal governments. In an effort to provide cities with the fiscal tools and strategies needed to fund their critical role in society, the Lincoln Institute seeks research that addresses the challenge of promoting the fiscal health of municipal governments at all levels. Research topics might include, but are not limited to:
  • Local Revenues and the Significance of the Property Tax
  • Intersections of Planning and Public Finance
  • Land-based Fiscal Instruments to Support Infrastructure Investment
  • Trends in Local Revenue Sources
  • Efforts to Measure Fiscal Health of Cities and Towns
  • The Impact of State and Federal Decisions on Local Fiscal Health
  • Innovative Management of Local Debt and Pension Obligations 
This fellowship program helps to promote international scholarly dialogue on the fiscal health of the world's cities and towns, and further Lincoln Institute's mission to be a leading center for tax and land related policy throughout the world.  

Applications are due by email on September 30, 2015.
