The American Council on Intergovernmental Relations is a nonprofit organization incorporated for charitable and educational purposes. The Council began operations in October 1996, and was formed by former staff members of the U.S. Advisory Commission on Intergovernmental Relations (USACIR), designed to be a successor to that agency, as a federalism clearinghouse, a nonpartisan research entity, and a policy forum. The Council has acquired USACIR's publications inventory and other information resources and will continue distribution of intergovernmental relations materials. [The Council is NO LONGER updating or maintaining the series Significant Features of Fiscal Federalism. For more on the substance of that series, follow the link.]
Council operations are totally dependent on contributions, grants, contracts, and product and service fees. The Council has no federal funding; but, some state, city, county, and other government entities have agreed in the past to provide funding to the Council. In addition, contributions, in-kind and monetary, have been made by other organizations and individuals.
