The Coalition for Evidence-Based Policy is a nonprofit organization sponsored by the Council for Excellence in Government. Its bipartisan board includes former senior government officials, scholars, researchers, and others who represent a range of policy areas.
The new initiative will include the development of a "What Works Clearinghouse" to help policymakers obtain information on effective crime and substance-abuse interventions. It will explore ways for communities to use existing resources to replicate research-proven strategies, and it will strive to increase collaboration within federal agencies to build a knowledge base and increase the use of evidence-based policy.
The initiative is independently funded by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and the Jerry Lee Foundation.
