New Mexico Law to Support Evidence-Based Policy
March 7, 2019 | Grantee News | Policy Research

The law aims to shift state spending from ineffective programs to programs that have measurably demonstrated their effectiveness. The Pew-MacArthur Results First Initiative began partnering with the state in 2011 to support more evidence-based policy; since 2013, New Mexico has allocated approximately $350 million to evidence-based programs.
