Education Finance Research Consortium

The Education Fiance Research Consortium (EFRC) is an ongoing collaboration between the New York State Education Department (NYSED) and university-based researchers with expertise and an interest in education finance. The EFRC is currently housed at the University at Albany but researchers who have benefited from EFRC research grants are affiliated with other universities and colleges, both across New York and elsewhere in the nation. Findings, recommendations and data revealed by EFRC research have driven New York State education legislation, regulation, finance and practice since 1992 and help ground NYSED decision decisions-making in data and evidence as to best practices, cost-effectiveness, fiscal matters relating to taxing and spending and the teaching workforce, among others.
