This grant provides general operating support to the Congressional Management Foundation. The foundation works directly with members of Congress and their staffs to enhance both internal operations and external interactions with constituents. The foundation does this through new member and staff orientations, staff training, research, and individual office consulting. Because of its unique perspective on Congress, the foundation also trains citizen groups on effective engagement and provides them with research to help them understand how Congress actually works. The foundation further acts as a critic, defender, and explainer of Congress—demystifying the legislative process.
