Grants to this Grantee
for research on the impacts of US food aid reform on the shipping industry
George Mason University (GMU) will conduct economic analysis of the impact of the U.S. Government's food aid reforms on the U.S. shipping industry, and their implications for the efficiency and effectiveness of U.S. food aid programs capacity to respond to needy populations in emergency and humanitarian situations. The results of this analysis will support policy makers and advocates working to improve the efficiency of U.S. food aid programs. GMU expects the results of the analysis may lead to feeding more needy people without increasing the budget.
for support of historical and comparative research on ways to improve the federal budget process
This project grant is to support work by Paul Posner, a leading authority on the federal budget process at George Mason University, for a multifaceted research program to trace the development and analyze the budget process from new vantage points. This research will in turn set the stage for a longer-run effort to improve the process that Professor Posner will be undertaking with colleagues at other institutions.
