Description

Building State and Local Capacity for Evidence-Based Policymaking: How Can the Federal Government Help?

Wednesday, March 30, 2016

Room 385, Russell Senate Office Building

11:45 am – 1:15 p.m.



Over the last five years, Congress and the Obama Administration have increasingly prioritized the use of data and evidence in their budget and policy priorities. Congress has passed bipartisan laws with significant evidence-based policy provisions, including the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act and the Every Student Succeeds Act. The Administration’s FY17 budget request includes more evidence-based provisions than any previous request. As a result, state and local governments will need to enhance their capacity for using data and evidence to continuously improve the performance of their programs. Join us for a frank discussion about what needs to happen in the next five years for evidence-based policymaking in the social sector to succeed at the state and local level, and what the federal government can do to support states and localities in making this shift.
