Learn About the Candidate Briefing Program

Did you know that Candidates can get a policy briefing from The Heritage Foundation? Many of the 2016 presidential candidates, congressional candidates, and current Members of Congress, as well as their respective teams have attended a Candidate Briefing at The Heritage Foundation.  In fact, Heritage has done over 110 briefings since July of 2015.

Each briefing is tailored to the issues that a candidate finds most important. Briefings are held one-on-one with Heritage’s best policy experts who can cover an issue from the basics of conservative policy to a deep dive into the minutiae of an issue. During the briefing, a candidate has the opportunity to engage Heritage’s policy experts in an interactive discussion to develop a robust understanding of an issue.

There is no charge for the briefing, and scheduling is flexible. Briefings are offered and available to all candidates for public office regardless of political party.

Scheduling a Briefing
To schedule a briefing, please contact Sean McMahon at sean.mcmahon@heritage.org with a list of topics and available dates.
