Supporting Improvements to SAMHSA’s Evidence Clearinghouse

On January 26, 2018, Results for America and the Invest in What Works Coalition sent a letter to the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services and Congressional leaders, urging them to support improvements to the National Registry of Evidence-based Programs and Practices at Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration at HHS. The letter was signed by 73 organizations and individuals.

As outlined in RFA’s annual Invest in What Works Index, we believe that all federal agencies should identify and promote the use of evidence-based interventions through publicly-available, user-friendly tools. You can find more information on the Invest in What Works Index here.
