Results for America is helping decision-makers at all levels of government harness evidence and data to make progress on great challenges.
Our mission is to help decision makers at all levels of government harness the power of evidence and data to solve our world’s greatest challenges. Our mission is to make investing in what works the “new normal,” so that when policymakers make decisions, they start by seeking the best evidence and data available, then use what they and to get better results.
How we do it
Results for America is helping decision-makers at all levels of government accelerate their use of evidence and data to get better results by:
Standards of Excellence
Creating “standards of excellence” that highlight the government infrastructure necessary to invest in what works
Supporting policymakers committed to investing in what works through tools, resources and technical assistance
Mobilizing champions committed to investing in what works
Results for America is already having an outsized impact. We are accelerating progress, achieving significant policy wins and helping policymakers implement what works.
RFA and our coalition partners have helped shift more than $2.6 billion in federal funds toward evidence-based solutions in FYs 2014-2016.
