Tools & Resources

Building Momentum

Results for America has been the driving force behind more than 500 media articles, policy reports, videos, events, and other content platforms, including the book "Moneyball for Government." 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 find to get better results.

We accomplish this goal by: creating government “standards of excellence” that highlight the infrastructure necessary to be able to invest in what works; supporting policymakers committed to investing in what works; and enlisting champions committed to investing in what works. We developed the following tools and resources to help decision-makers at all levels of government accelerate their use of evidence and data.
