Public Policy

Government Updates

HFES partners with Lewis-Burke Associates LLC to aid in promoting the importance of HF/E science among federal agencies and legislators.  Lewis-Burke has developed a Guide to Federal Outreach & Advocacy for use by HFES members. It includes instructions on how to identify your member of Congress, methods for interacting with policy makers, and procedures for developing an effective message, among other topics.

For information on social science programs available across the federal government, please refer to Lewis-Burke's Overview of Federal Funding Opportunities for Behavioral and Social Sciences, Arts and Humanities. To illustrate topics of the sort you are likely to see posted here in the future, a list of announcements relating to public policy, as well as a list of HFES Bulletin titles published are provided below:
