PolicyForResults.org offers policymakers the latest high-quality research and evidence needed to craft policies that make measurable differences for children and families. CSSP developed this website to help governors and state legislators quickly cut through the well-intentioned but highly fragmented information, advice, research papers, issue briefs and reports on child and family policy.
The site offers cogent, clear examples of effective policies, other states’ experiences and guidance on tailoring policy to specific state conditions. In just a few clicks, policymakers can find information that:
1. Children are Healthy
2. Children Enter School Ready to Learn and Prepared to Succeed
3. Youth are Prepared to Succeed as Adults
4. Children Grow Up in Safe, Supportive and Economically Successful Families
CSSP looks at the latest data and how that impacts three cities involved in place-based change efforts.
“This website is the dream of people who want to change the culture of state government.”
