The AmeriCorps (formerly CNCS) Office of Research and Evaluation has built a portfolio of evidence around the agency’s mission and its programs. This State of the Evidence report synthesizes results from research and evaluation activities conducted between fiscal years 2015 and 2016. Specifically, findings from research studies conducted by university-based scholars, program evaluations conducted by independent third parties, agency performance metrics, and analyses of nationally representative statistics are summarized. In addition, the report includes key metrics that reflect the agency’s use of evidence in its budget, management, and policy decisions during the same time period.
