Grants to this Grantee
for advancing a free-market clean energy agenda
The R Street Institute is a nonpartisan think tank whose mission is to promote free markets and limited, effective government. This grant will support the Institute’s Agenda for Energy Reform program to further define and advance competitive energy markets and energy innovation. The Institute will provide intellectual and policy guidance to help cultivate a broader conservative movement in support of solutions to America’s energy and environmental challenges.
for the Cyber Program
R Street Institute is a nonprofit, nonpartisan public policy research organization with a mission of engaging in policy research and outreach to promote free markets and limited, effective government. Support to its Cyber Program will allow for the creation of a center-right institution for American cyber policy that will pursue four interconnected projects: (a) agreed-upon metrics for the assessment of cybersecurity; (b) talent pipeline growth through the establishment of a fellows program; (c) local law enforcement capacity building; and (d) a pilot program for the creation of a volunteer cyber force modeled after the existing volunteer unit, the Estonian Defence League Cyber Defence Unit. Through this support, the program will also be able to hire additional senior scholars to bring unique perspectives to these issues and allow it to continue nurturing its existing relationships across sectors, which will undoubtedly grow and deepen toward broader advancement of the cybersecurity field.
for support of the Governance Project
The R Street Institute is an innovative, pragmatic, right-of-center think tank that conducts research into ways to achieve "limited, effective government." While R Street aims to limit the size and scope of governmental activity, it also thinks it important that government accomplish its core functions in an efficient, effective manner. Since Congress is the key governing institution, its suboptimal functioning is a major concern. This grant funds the Institute’s Governance Project, which explores how Congress operates and examines nonpartisan opportunities for intra-institutional reforms. These include the mechanisms and processes Congress uses to carry out its oversight, regulatory, budget, and appropriations functions, as well as its human capital and other resources for executing its constitutional duties and meeting the public’s demands
