Supporting Local Policymakers’ Implementation of What Works

Results for America is helping policymakers act on evidence and data through tools, resources, coaching and partnerships that provide technical assistance.

Results for America’s Local Government Fellowship is supporting 15 senior city and county government leaders, in positions of influence, who are committed to leading their governments toward advanced stages of data-driven, evidence-based policy-making. All fellows conduct a local government self-assessment on their use of data and evidence; create 2-3 year roadmaps for policy change; implement local data-driven policy and program priorities; and partner with an external research or academic institution to evaluate a major government-funded policy or program investment to inform policy decisions.
