Tell Congress Your Program is an Example of Evidence in Action
It is important to highlight the impact of decisions being debated regarding federal funding and potential cuts for important federal programs like AmeriCorps, the Social Innovation Fund, 21st Century Community Learning Centers, Striving Readers, Teacher Quality Partnership, LIHEAP, and Community Services Block Grant, to name just a few. Additionally, as a community that supports focusing government funding on what works, it is critical to highlight programs for which outcomes are being collected and where impact has been evaluated.
