Overview
This grant will support the final phase of the Center for American Progress’ Generational Change and American Democracy project, which is partnering with Brookings, the Democracy Fund, and the Bipartisan Policy Center. The initiative has worked to project the effects of emerging younger generations on future public opinion, voting behavior, and the health of democracy. The baby boomers — the generation that has dominated society for more than 30 years — are being eclipsed by younger and more diverse Americans. The millennials and post-millennials represented 37 percent of eligible voters — far more than the boomers — in 2020. This supplemental grant will allow the project to conclude with an analysis of the 2020 election.

Grants to this Grantee
for building U.S. capacity to shape the strategy and narrative on climate cooperation and competition with China  
To support Center for American Progress's work to strengthen U.S. capacity on U.S. China climate partnership. The grant will build bipartisan consensus on a path for America's international climate policy. It strives to reframe the U.S. thinking about the role of U.S.-China relations in the climate policy and target context, focusing on tools that increase the cost of emissions and boost clean alternatives from China. Longer term, Center for American Progress will form a network to inform and convince the US policy makers that the U.S. can shift the emissions trajectory of the world's two largest emitters – U.S. and China - by adopting an accountable framework in international trade, development and diplomacy.
