The research underlying the Center for Research on the Wisconsin Economy, within the Department of Economics at the University of Wisconsin-Madison was funded by a grant from the National Science Foundation. CROWE was established with the assistance of a grant from the Lynde and Harry Bradley Foundation in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Additionally, CROWE has received support from the Charles Koch Foundation in Arlington, Virginia. If you would like to become involved in our efforts to support and disseminate economic policy research, please feel free to contact us here or here.
