Grants to this Grantee
for the sustainable security program
The Center for American Progress’s Sustainable Security and Peacebuilding Initiative promotes investments in global prosperity and stability to foster long-term U.S. national security. This grant will permit the Initiative to engage in three areas: (1) promote strong U.S. engagement on the Sustainable Development Goals and related Financing for Development agenda, including through original analysis and convening;( 2) inform the President’s Global Development Council; and (3) provide leadership and content to the Modernizing Foreign Assistance Network, including through co-chairing the Emerging Issues Working Group and conducting analysis on the aid reform agenda of the Bush and Obama administrations.
for support of the "States of Change: Demographics and Democracy" project
The Center for American Progress and the American Enterprise Institute are leading Washington think tanks working at the intersection of politics and policy. This grant would allow experts in demography and public opinion at both institutions to jointly assess likely trends and patterns of diversity in the U.S. population over the next several decades. These projections will have major implications for our political system and the polarization that is now so readily observable within it. Having experts from these two different institutions publicly project, discuss, and debate our nation’s evolving demographics will help illuminate the path forward—and pitfalls to avoid—for political leaders and policy advocates alike.
for research on school accountability system reform
The Center for American Progress is an independent, nonpartisan educational institute promoting progressive ideas and action. The center will develop interrelated state and national frameworks for next-generation school accountability systems and explore how policy can best incentivize instruction and assessment for deeper learning student outcomes. The center hopes to advance new ideas for restructuring state and federal accountability systems, which will make it easier to improve innovative delivery of content knowledge, higher-order skills, and academic mindsets.
