Randomized Controlled Trials to Evaluate Social Programs Whose Delivery Will Be Funded by Government or Other Entities

The goal in funding such RCTs is to build the body of programs rigorously shown to produce sizable, sustained benefits to participants or society, and to do so in a cost-efficient manner by leveraging program funds contributed by government, philanthropic foundations, or other funders.

Diversion and Alternative to Arrest Programs

The foundation is primarily interested in measuring the impact of diversion programs on public safety, fairness, and cost efficiency. Particular outcomes of interest include recidivism (e.g., frequency of re-arrest, additional
charges, additional convictions); the use of criminal justice and/or other public resources (e.g., jail booking,
jail days, court costs, emergency room admissions, failures to appear); and socio-economic indicators (e.g.,
housing, employment, income, and education).
