With support from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, the Urban Institute set out to study how innovative policies and programs from abroad could inform state and local efforts in the United States to build an inclusive recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic. This work began with two analyses: a demand analysis to identify the priorities of top state and local policymakers for an inclusive recovery and a comparative analysis to identify countries that could provide the best opportunities to find relevant examples. This methodological note describes the project’s underlying rationale and the project’s approach and methodology for the demand analysis, the comparative analysis, and the five policy research briefs.
