Grants to this Grantee
for support of a project to assess the role of Congress in US national security policy  
The Center for a New American Security is an independent, bipartisan think tank that develops strong pragmatic and principled national security and defense policies. The grant will contribute to a project focused on revitalizing Congress’ role in national security, particularly in the areas of war powers and intelligence oversight. The project’s goals include making recommendations for improving Congress’ engagement on national security issues by clarifying what formal and informal tools are available to members to engage in this space. Congress has an important role to play in providing democratic accountability and transparency in the national security arena. This project is intended to enhance Congress’ ability to fulfill that role in a meaningful way.
for general operating support  
Established in 2007, the Center for a New American Security (CNAS) works to develop "strong, pragmatic and principled national security and defense policies." It does so on a bipartisan basis, with efforts led by senior officials who have served in the Administrations of both parties. Building on the expertise and experience of these staff and advisors, CNAS engages policymakers, experts and the public with innovative, fact-based research, ideas and analysis to shape and elevate the national security debate. This grant will support CNAS’s ongoing work, while allowing for increased focus in two key areas: Rebuilding the Bipartisan Defense Consensus and a new initiative aimed at Technology and National Security.
