The Forum for Youth Investment and the Urban Institute invite you to learn how federal, state, and local government officials use evidence to improve programs and policies and how these approaches can be used in the implementation of the Foundations for Evidence-Based Policymaking Act. Through the Evidence Act, agencies are considering how to integrate new positions and processes into their work. The discussion will highlight ways to make evidence for improvement more institutionalized and iterative.
Panelists will share how their agencies use evidence when drafting policy changes and reforming programs, as well as what evidence led them to improve their initiatives. Attendees will then hear from the Office of Management and Budget’s evidence team on opportunities to use evidence to improve programs through the implementation of the Evidence Act.
