The Steven D. Gold Award was created in 1997 in memory of Steve Gold, who had an exemplary career as an analyst, researcher, and teacher, specializing in issues related to state and local public finance and intergovernmental relations. In addition to being a long-time member of the National Tax Association, Gold held positions at the National Conference of State Legislatures (NCSL), as director of the Center for the Study of the States at the Rockefeller Institute, as a professor at the State University of New York-Albany, and as co-director of the Urban Institute’s New Federalism Project. The award is given annually by the NTA, the NCSL, and the Association for Public Policy Analysis and Management — all organizations in which he was an active member — with the winner selected by one of the three organizations each year on a rotating basis.
The Gold Award honors individuals who have made significant contributions to state and local fiscal policy and have demonstrated a capacity to cross the boundaries between academic research and public policy making. Current NTA officers and members of the Board of Directors are ineligible for nomination while serving.
