The ANCA closely tracks the performance of every incumbent Senator and Representative across a broad array of pro-Armenian legislative metrics, carefully scores and objectively grades each legislator, and then – as a public service to voters interested in factoring our insights into the diverse set of criteria they consider when voting – widely circulates non-biased, fact-driven, merit-based Report Cards and Endorsements each election cycle.

Halfway through the Congressional term, in February 2022, the ANCA also provides a mid-term progress report on the legislator's performance on pro-Armenian priorities. Final grades for the legislative term and endorsements will be shared in October, 2022.
