We are not just a think tank, we are a policy bank, filled with research and data on best practices to produce better outcomes.  We are a resource to decision makers and policy leaders who desire to make the most positive, meaningful impact in Florida.

The Florida Policy Project is a not-for-profit organization committed to advancing evidence-based policies and practices to improve the lives of Floridians. Our mission is to conduct rigorous research and provide education to policymakers and the public on critical issues facing Florida, including but not limited to criminal justice reform, property insurance, transportation, and housing.

Through our research and outreach efforts, we aim to drive informed decision-making and foster a culture of collaboration among stakeholders in Florida’s public policy arena. Our work is grounded in academic rigor and integrity. We strive to engage with diverse perspectives and communities to ensure our research and advocacy efforts are focused on best practices to achieve better outcomes. The Florida Policy Project is supported by individuals, foundations, and corporations and does not accept government funds or contributions that could influence the outcomes of its research.

The overarching mission of FPP is to positively influence the quality of life for Florida residents and guests.
