Results First Peer Learning Community Helps to Advance Evidence-Based Policymaking
The Pew Charitable Trusts

The Pew Charitable Trusts transferred the Peer Learning Community to the National Conference of State Legislatures (NCSL) and ended its work on this resource in 2021. Please visit NCSL’s Results-Driven Governing website for more information.

The Pew Charitable Trusts’ Results First initiative launched the Results First Peer Learning Community in July 2020 to encourage its state partners to network and collaborate on strategies that promote and sustain evidence-based policymaking. The learning community supports representatives from Results First’s leading state partners—Alabama, Colorado, Iowa, Minnesota, Mississippi, New Mexico, New York, and North Carolina—by promoting peer networking among states, helping to develop additional in-state support for their efforts, and positioning states as leaders in the national field of evidence-based policymaking.

Through this community, state partners can participate in webinars and informal discussions, access a private communications platform where they can share resources and updates, and showcase their achievements to others in the field. State legislators, budget directors, agency leadership, and legislative and executive branch staff members from these eight states are members of this learning community.
