In March 2013, Rhode Island partnered with the Pew-MacArthur Results First Initiative to help meet the state’s objective of applying data and evidence to key budget, policy, and regulatory decisions. The state is currently developing the Rhode Island Results First cost-benefit model to examine the effectiveness of its criminal justice and child welfare programs.
