Overview
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.

Grants to this Grantee
for support of a free-market research project for birth control access and information  
R Street Institute is a nonpartisan organization that engages in policy research and outreach to promote free markets and limited, effective government. This grant will support R Street to continue advancing a right-of-center case for deregulating birth control by allowing pharmacists to prescribe it directly to patients. R Street is providing intellectual and policy guidance to cultivate broader conservative support for birth control access, and is playing a key role in growing a left-right coalition around the topic. This grant is strongly aligned with our goals of reducing unnecessary barriers to reproductive health care and supporting a diverse advocacy ecosystem. (Strategy: U.S. Reproductive Health and Rights.)
for general operating support  
The R Street Institute is an innovative, pragmatic think tank whose mission is to engage in policy research and outreach to promote limited, effective government. In this light, the U.S. Congress’ suboptimal functioning is a major concern. This grant funds R Street’s Governance Project, which studies how Congress operates and examines nonpartisan opportunities for intra-institutional reforms. These include Congress’ 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 in the 21st century. (Strategy: Strengthening Congress)
