What we do

The Center for Local Policy Analysis (CLPA) is a non-profit that provides information about local policymaking institutions to residents of the Washington Metropolitan Area so they can become better advocates for themselves as well as their community. The work we do at CLPA aims to provide an approachable, fact-based, non-partisan method to both policymaking and some of our community's biggest challenges.

CLPA will provide weekly updates and analysis on local and state legislation, regulations, and resolutions that will have an impact on the Washingon Metropolitan Area.

CLPA will provide links to helpful resources to become actively involved in the political process or to improve conditions in your neighborhood. If you see a resource that is not listed that needs to be, please contact us and we will update our site.

CLPA will highlight key statements, decisions, and votes in the various legislative bodies around the Washington Metropolitan Area. During election season, we will profile candidates running for office and their policy proposals.
