State and Local Innovation Initiative
Through this initiative, state and local governments can apply for project development awards, including:
- Up to one year of pro bono technical support as they design randomized evaluations to inform critical policy questions;
- Flexible funding to help get these evaluations off the ground; and
- Connections with J-PAL’s network of leading academic researchers.
State and local governments that have partnered with a researcher from J-PAL’s network to design a high-quality randomized evaluation can apply for funding to carry out the evaluations.
The state and local leaders selected to participate in this initiative serve as a model for others across the United States, demonstrating that state and local governments can create and use rigorous evidence to address challenging social problems.
