Administrative Burden

Administrative Burden

Policymaking by Other Means

Pamela Herd, Donald P. Moynihan

Some populations may find themselves facing burdens with limited third-party supports, reinforcing inequality across groups. For example, those who struggle to manage newly imposed voter ID laws because of difficulties with documentation cannot turn to an obvious nonprofit organization that would offer specialized support. This creates a challenge—and opportunity—for the philanthropic community: identify communities facing significant administrative burdens but without strong networks of support to help minimize the costs they experience.
