Kil Huh is director of the State Fiscal Health and Economic Growth initiative at Pew, which conducts in-depth research to better understand the factors contributing to state budget woes and budget shortfalls. The project also provides critical insights as state policy makers seek to navigate a difficult fiscal landscape in the years to come.
Huh leads a project team of researchers, policy analysts, journalists, and consultants to design and implement research and analysis across all 50 states that inform state policy-focused efforts on a wide range of issues. Those issues include state tax systems, retirement benefits, health care costs, and mortgage lending, among other key fiscal drivers.
Prior to joining Pew, he was most recently the director of policy and consulting at the Fannie Mae Foundation and previously manager of the foundation’s state and local initiatives.
Huh holds a bachelor of science degree in urban regional studies from Cornell University, a master’s degree in urban planning from New York University, and both a master’s degree in philosophy and a doctorate in urban planning from Columbia University.
