Pew-MacArthur Results First Initiative

Project Partners

The Pew-MacArthur Results First Initiative works with states to implement an innovative cost-benefit analysis approach that helps them invest in policies and programs that are proven to work. This is a partnership of The Pew Charitable Trusts and the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation, with additional support from the Annie E. Casey Foundation.

The John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation supports creative people and effective institutions committed to building a more just, verdant, and peaceful world. In addition to selecting the MacArthur Fellows, the Foundation works to defend human rights, advance global conservation and security, make cities better places, and understand how technology is affecting children and society.

The Annie E. Casey Foundation creates a brighter future for the nation’s children by developing solutions to strengthen families, build paths to economic opportunity and transform struggling communities into safer and healthier places to live, work and grow.
