The Center for Municipal Finance (CMF) enables students and faculty to engage the major financial issues of the day facing state and local governments in the United States and around the globe.

Some of the topical and enduring issues of municipal finance include financing infrastructure, the use of municipal bonds, privatization, pension liabilities and the efficacy of reform, tax base adequacy, and more.

We aim to be the leading intellectual destination for those seeking the very best research and training,” says Harris Professor Christopher Berry, who directs the CMF.
