Building Better Social Programs

David Stoesz

Oxford University Press

Arnold Ventures, previously the Laura and John Arnold Foundation, incorporated the Coalition for Evidence-based Policy, begun by Jon Baron, in order to promote research in social programming. At the same time, the Pew Charitable Trust and the MacArthur Foundation used the Washington State Institute for Public Policy’s cost–benefit capacity to encourage states to deploy evidence-based programming. By the 2017, Arnold Ventures was committed to fund any credible randomized controlled trial to enhance services. The evidence movement culminated in the 2018 Evidence-based Policymaking Act, which requires federal agencies to develop an evaluation plan along with statistical and advisory capability in addition to standards to which states and private firms must comply in order to receive federal funds.
