Results for America: A Decade of Progress and Impact


Ten years ago, Results for America was started with a simple idea: Governments that harness the power of evidence and data would make better decisions and faster progress on our toughest challenges.

Ten years later, we are seeing the results: Billions of federal dollars shifted to more effective solutions. Millions of people across the country benefiting from more results-oriented government decisions. Thousands of high-impact government leaders – at every level – delivering for residents.

A new 10-year report, released at an event celebrating our 10th anniversary, highlights how Results for America has helped government leaders use evidence and data to increase the impact of government dollars and steer more public dollars to solutions that accelerate economic mobility.

Our mission for the next 10 years: To spread this approach far and wide. To close racial gaps and open opportunities for all. To work with leaders across the political spectrum to improve the impact of the over $2 trillion already being spent each year by governments in the United States to meet the needs of vulnerable populations and advance economic mobility.
