Assigning district borders to census blocks

for my analysis, I am trying to assign congressional district borders to census blocks.

I have 2 files: one file that contains congressional districts as polygons, and one file that contains census blocks as polygons.

There are a couple of things that I need to do now:

1) Find the census blocks that are located at a congressional district border.

2) Assign a number to a given border, such that I can match two census blocks on different sides of the district border (in different districts with same border).

Can anyone help me with these tasks?
