Request for Proposals
The Youth Policy Lab was founded to help improve life outcomes for Michigan youth, from birth through age 25. The Lab is a hands-on initiative to support the growing demand for rigorous evidence about the likely outcomes of proposed policy interventions.
One goal of the Youth Policy Lab is to provide technical assistance to state and local agencies, school districts, and nonprofits that serve Michigan’s youth, by helping them conduct the analyses that they need to do their jobs most effectively. This request for proposals is designed to identify partner agencies with whom the Lab will work to answer questions about the clients they serve, the problems they seek to address, and the effectiveness of their programs while, at the same time, building the internal capacity to address future questions.
This request for proposals is open to Michigan-based organizations (or organizations doing substantial work in Michigan) seeking to use data to improve service delivery or program design for Michigan youth. The most suitable proposals will be selected through review by the Youth Policy Lab based on the criteria described below.
This initiative builds upon our years of experience partnering with service providers and agencies to evaluate programs and is made possible with funding from the Laura and John Arnold Foundation.
Please review additional information about the program, application process, and awards on the subsequent pages. If you have any questions about our services or your proposed project, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Completed applications are due by May 1, 2017.
