RFF General Support

General support helps RFF fulfill many essential functions, including providing basic support for researchers, underwriting public events (including the First Wednesday Seminar Series), and conducting outreach to inform policymaking. General support allows RFF to apply resources where they’re most needed and enable researchers to take risks, pursue new lines of inquiry, take advantage of funding opportunities, and engage with policymakers.
