About this grant

This grant will provide support for the Strengthening America’s Future Initiative at the Center for the Study of the Presidency and Congress. In order to assist the presidential transition and new administration, the grantee will conduct a comprehensive net assessment to identify the critical challenges, the crosswalks between them, and the cost of inaction. With the assistance of a prominent steering committee, an innovations and synergies team, and specific issue teams, the grantee will develop a conceptual framework that will recommend prioritized, synergetic solutions to address the nation’s most pressing issues. The White House, congressional leaders, and the general public will be engaged through a series of briefings and an interactive Web site.
