Policymakers and practitioners can produce better results for Minnesotans when they prioritize evidence-based services and rigorously evaluate services that do not yet have evidence of effectiveness.   

The following tool identifies the extent to which state-funded grant programs administered by the Minnesota Department of Human Services supported evidence-based practices in fiscal years 2020 and 2021, based on grantee reporting and a review of administrative records.  "Evidence-based” practices have been found to be effective by at least one scientific study.  Other practices may also be effective, even if their effectiveness has not yet been scientifically studied.  A summary report--including the methods used to conduct this analysis--is available here (PDF).
