Shifting $2.6 Billion Toward Evidence-Based Solutions

Results for America and our coalition partners have helped shift more than $2.6 billion in federal funds toward evidence-based solutions between Fiscal Years 2014-2016:

Results for America helped develop and enact the evidence provisions in the bipartisan Every Student Succeeds Act which could help states and district shift $2 billion toward evidence-based, results-driven solutions annually in FYs 2017-2020.

Results for America and our Invest in What Works Coalition partners helped develop and enact a new federal workforce development law that could shift $280 million toward evidence-based, results-driven workforce development solutions in FY16 and each year moving forward. The bipartisan Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) authorizes states and local workforce investment boards to invest up to 10% of their federal workforce development funds in Pay for Performance Initiatives.
