Library of Congress: The Congressional Research Service

The Congressional Research Service (CRS) is an agency within the Library of Congress that works exclusively for the United States Congress, providing policy and legal analysis to committees and members of both the House and Senate.


This grant to the Library of Congress will support the Congressional Research Service’s orientation seminars for newly-elected members of the 117th Congress. It will also support “Dinner and Democracy Seminars,” a series of classes on governance-related topics led by leading academics and organized by the Library’s John W. Kluge Center.
