Overview
The mission of the Partnership for Public Service is to revitalize the federal government by inspiring a new generation to serve and by transforming the way government works. This grant will enable the Partnership to do nonpartisan research and education to highlight how Congressional dysfunction affects the executive branch. It can work back from these negative ramifications to illuminate the changes in how Congress operates that would have the most positive benefit on public administration. The Partnership has a unique perspective and track record on these issues and is widely respected in Congress, so this offers a powerful way of identifying downstream (executive branch) requirements for upstream (legislative branch) reforms.

Grants to this Grantee
for support of the Alliance for Congress communications plan  
The Partnership for Public Service’s Alliance for Congress will develop a communications strategy that informs and energizes its efforts to build a coalition of individuals, initiatives, and organizations to strengthen Congress. In developing this strategy, the group will learn where potential allies need help and thoroughly understand the broad range of issues around which Congress needs to be strengthened. Ultimately, this initiative will drive efforts to improve attitudes and change the narrative around the public’s understanding of Congress and the stewardship required to serve in Congress.
for general operating support  
The Partnership for Public Service works to revitalize our federal government by transforming the way government works and inspiring a new generation to serve. The Partnership plans to equip career and political leaders to improve government functioning and effectiveness, encourage leaders to improve the health and performance of legislative and congressional branch entities, promote greater use of data to drive better decision making, build critical connections and foster collaboration within government and across sectors, and mobilize outside actors, such as business, academia, and the social sector, to encourage investments in government’s health, integrity, capacity, and performance.
for support of the Alliance for Congress project  
The Partnership for Public Service’s new initiative, Alliance for Congress, will champion the role of a healthy Congress in our democracy; equip members of Congress, their staff, and the broader institution with the tools and resources they need to manage and lead effectively; and strengthen connections among Congress, critical stakeholders, and the general public. It will work closely with allied organizations dedicated to strengthening Congress and building greater public support for the institution.
