Type of SupportProject
The Campaign Finance Working Group administered by New York University will provide bipartisan research that can serve as a common factual basis for understanding and discussing the federal campaign finance system. It will complete a report on the state of campaign finance to be delivered within one year of the 2016 election. That report will not propose reforms or make policy recommendations, but will discuss the fundamental changes occurring in the campaign finance system and place them in historical context.

for support of the Equity and Democracy Initiative
The Equity and Democracy Initiative at NYU is an ambitious, multifaceted initiative to catalyze understanding, innovation, high-impact work, and social change. The initiative combines scholarship, field-building, experiential education, academic convenings, internships, and fellowships to examine how inequality functions, is exacerbated, and can most effectively be disrupted — in our economy and in our democracy. The initiative is sponsored by the Center on Race, Inequality, and the Law at NYU School of Law and NYU Wagner Graduate School of Public Service.
for the Modernizing Regulatory Review Project
The Institute for Policy Integrity at NYU School of Law is a nonpartisan think tank and advocacy organization dedicated to improving the quality of government decision making. This grant will help support the institute’s capacity to continue its influential research and advocacy on regulatory policy. Projects will focus on such topics as improving distributional analysis to ensure that regulations appropriately benefit (and do not burden) disadvantaged/vulnerable communities; modernizing the analysis behind transportation sector regulations, to properly account for pollution reductions and consumer savings; and advocating for all relevant policy decisions to account for the economic impacts of climate change.
