Grants to this Grantee
for general operating support
The Federation of American Scientists believes that scientists, engineers, and other technically trained people have the ethical obligation to ensure that the technological fruits of science are applied to the benefit of humanity. It works to make government more accountable and provide scientific knowledge to policymakers. Its Congressional Science Policy Initiative promotes better two-way communication to inform and educate Congress and the public on complex science and technology issues and to educate the science community on the workings of Congress. Its Day One Project is working with the executive branch to bring top-quality science talent into senior positions in executive agencies, strengthening the capacity to address science-related issues.
for federal capacity for wildfire resilience
The Federation of American Scientists is a nonpartisan, nonprofit policy research and advocacy organization that works to address issues where science, technology, and innovation policy can deliver dramatic progress and prevent catastrophic harm. The federation’s Day One Project launched the Day One Talent Hub to provide a pathway for federal leaders to access diverse, leading scientific and technological experts interested in serving a “tour of duty” in the federal government. This grant supports the group in seeking wildfire experts for this pathway. (Substrategy: Wildfire)
