To complete this assignment, you will gather information independently from major news sources that identify and discuss current issues, organization websites that describe public programs, and public opinion polls and surveys. It may be necessary to delve into research papers, books, congressional/legislative history or scholarly resources to determine how the need for this program was identified, and to understand political context, as well as the beneficiaries/target population.

The information that you provide about the rationale for government action will come from your personal synthesis and analysis, and will draw on the course readings about the rationale for government action. Public opinion data may be very obviously available, or you may need to dig for it
