New Hampshire Fiscal Policy Institute Welcomes Jessica Williams as Newest Policy Analyst



The New Hampshire Fiscal Policy Institute (NHFPI) expands the capacity of its research team with the addition of Jessica Williams, MSW, MPH. As NHFPI’s newest Policy Analyst, Jessica will research issues central to the economic opportunity and well-being of Granite Staters, focusing through NHFPI’s lens on families and individuals with low and moderate incomes.

“I am passionate about contributing my skills and expertise to help ensure that Granite Staters, no matter their background, can prosper and thrive,” says Jessica. “I am excited to make a meaningful impact as an NHFPI Policy Analyst.”

Jessica comes to NHFPI with a background in public health and housing. As a Research Associate at the University of Illinois College of Medicine Rockford, Jessica helped evaluate the effectiveness of the Illinois Department of Public Health’s Tobacco-Free Communities Program. She has also worked on municipal-level projects with the Chicago Area Fair Housing Alliance and on federal-level policy research with the National Council for Mental Wellbeing.

Jessica obtained a Master’s of Public Health in Health Policy & Administration and a Master’s of Social Work in Organizational and Community Practice. Her unique background has given her opportunities to work directly with community stakeholders to both better understand the impacts of public policy and communicate research findings.

“We consider ourselves lucky to welcome Jessica to the Granite State,” says Phil Sletten, NHFPI’s Research Director. “Jessica will bring her passion for policy-focused research to NHFPI. Her experience collaborating with community stakeholders on housing and health research will help us substantially expand the reach and impact of our analyses.”
