Grants to this Grantee
for U.S. Public Lands and Rivers Conservation  
The Pew Charitable Trusts’ U.S. public lands and rivers conservation campaign works with communities west-wide to conserve biodiversity by identifying and protecting wildlife corridors, protecting and restoring free-flowing rivers, and expanding core habitat designations. In particular, Pew is working with other Western Conservation grantees, scientists, local partners, tribes, sportsmen and sportswomen groups, members of the business community, mayors, county commissioners, veterans, and others to advance new policies that safeguard these wild places and wild rivers for future generations to use and enjoy. At the local level, Pew continues to work with federal, state, and local natural resource officials and agencies to secure the removal or replacement of river barriers impeding fish passage, in coordination with Resources Legacy Fund’s Open Rivers Fund; seek new public funding for construction of wildlife crossing infrastructure projects within identified migration corridors; and preserve core areas of passageway for wildlife connectivity through federal land-use plans. (Substrategy: Advance Conservation Protections)
for Western Public Lands protection  
This renewal grant will support the Pew Charitable Trusts’ Western Public Lands Campaign, which works with communities to advance policies that protect national public lands of the American West.
for support of Pew Research Center's work on American politics  
The Pew Research Center conducts some of the nation’s most respected nonpartisan survey research about American attitudes toward politics and policy. Since 1987, Pew Research has conducted a periodic "political typology" survey, sorting Americans into cohesive groups based on their values, political beliefs, and party affiliation. These studies have helped reveal substantial political and social differences within as well as across members of each political party. This grant will support additional U.S. democracy research. Results of this expanded study will provide a rich database for academics, journalists, and others studying democracy in the United States.
