Grants to this Grantee
for support of Lawfare’s congressional coverage  
Brookings, in cooperation with Lawfare, aims to inform public debates on important questions of national security and effective governance through timely expert analysis focused on the health of American democracy. Amid partisanship and echo chambers, both policymakers and the public need objective information and analysis to help make informed opinions and policies that drive a healthier, more representative, and more secure America. This grant maintains editorial independence for the newsroom. (Substrategy: Legislative Branch)
for the advancement of gender equality on activities of the Center for Sustainable Development  
The Brookings Institution conducts in-depth research that leads to new ideas for solving problems facing society at the local, national, and global level. The Center for Sustainable Development at Brookings generates leading research and insights for advancing the development and implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals within and across countries. The center is committed to generating evidence, tools, and policy recommendations that support networked societal leadership for sustainable development. This grant will support the center in advancing a new program on gender and sustainable development. (Strategy: International Women’s Economic Empowerment).
for support of research on Congress  
The Brookings Institution conducts independent, in-depth research that leads to pragmatic and innovative policy solutions. This grant enables the Brookings Governance Studies program to continue its research and analysis related to Congress and its ability to fulfill its constitutional and problem-solving responsibilities. The research team led by Senior Fellow Molly Reynolds will explore a range of congressional reforms, including ongoing efforts to modernize the House of Representatives and big-picture questions about the future of the Senate and its place in our democratic system. Other areas of focus include budget and appropriations process reform; congressional oversight; and congressional capacity, productivity, demographics, and related issues.
