Building Better Social Programs

Grant Year: 2018

David Stoesz will research and write a book exploring the extent to which an evidence-based approach toward allocating resources to social programs could increase economic opportunities for disadvantaged individuals and families. He will trace the history of the evidence-based policy movement, describe a number of social policy interventions that have been shown to be effective, and then explore some of the key challenges facing this approach to policymaking, particularly replicability, scalability, openness to innovation, and financing.
