Overview
This renewal grant to the Center for American Progress would continue support for its successful efforts to restore balance between conservation and energy development on public lands. The goal of its efforts is to seek additional protection for ecologically important public land for the benefit of current and future generations. The Center would work to secure policies that minimize the impact of fossil fuels extraction on public lands, including reducing associated greenhouse gas emissions. To reach its goal, the Center will work with recreational users of public lands, businesses, and conservation organizations to develop wise policies and to help diverse voices from around the West speak on behalf of land protection.

Grants to this Grantee
for Generation Progress' digital advocacy campaigns centered on reproductive justice  
This grant will support Generation Progress’ capacity to scale its digital organizing campaigns to mobilize more young people to become civically engaged on gender justice and reproductive justice issues in their communities. Generation Progress will focus its digital advocacy and policy campaigns on issues that young people have polled as high priorities and will center their work on racial justice, gender justice, and LBGTQ equity.
for support of the fiscal policy and budget process reform efforts  
The Center for American Progress (CAP) is a multi-issue, nonpartisan policy institute whose core mission is to generate new policy ideas and translate them into progressive change. It regularly partners across the ideological spectrum to forge consensus policies and improve ways of governing. At a time when long-standing democratic norms face unprecedented strain, the center is focused on revitalizing public institutions and improving policymaking procedures. This project will advance work CAP has done to evaluate and propose changes to how the congressional budget process operates, including by researching and advancing proposals on emerging issues in federal budgeting.
for a community-informed strategy for modernizing and elevating the teaching profession  
The Center for American Progress (CAP) is an independent, nonpartisan policy institute dedicated to improving the lives of all Americans through bold, progressive ideas, as well as strong leadership and concerted action. CAP uses research and policy ideas to challenge the media to cover important issues and shape the national discourse. With policy teams in major issue areas, CAP will employ its extensive communications and outreach to advocate for changes that modernize and elevate the teaching profession to positively impact students from historically underserved communities.
