The ProQuest Congressional database searches across many different types of documents from the Legislative Branch of our Federal government.
Congressional Research Service (CRS) Reports are a particularly useful type of document in the database.
After running a search in ProQuest Congressional, use the limiters on the right-hand side of the search results screen to narrow you results by document type. You should see CRS Reports listed as a document type: click on this to limit the search to show only CRS Reports. If you do not see CRS Reports listed, try the More Options link.
Please note that this is not a complete list of federal agencies involved in social policy programs and topics. It is only a selected list of programs that are often of interest to students. For a complete overview of all U.S. Federal Government agencies refer to the U.S. Government Manual.
Unfortunately, there is not a compendium of programs similar to those described for the Federal-level. Rather, you are forced to find programmatic statements on the agency's website. Selected relevant agencies are listed below, others can be identified by consulting the Michigan Manual or browsing the State of Michigan website.
