As the use of evidence-based interventions in government become more prevalent, it will be critical to ensure such programs are effectively delivered, according to a brief from the Pew-MacArthur Results First Initiative. The initiative, a join project of the Pew Charitable Trusts and MacArthur, helps states apply a customized, innovative cost-benefit approach to policy and budget choices. The brief recommends that government agencies assess community needs and identify appropriate interventions; create policies that support effective implementation and monitoring; support service providers and staff through training and technical assistance; and create systems to monitor program implementation and improve performance.
