The Casey Foun­da­tion has issued a Request for Pro­pos­als to begin the process of select­ing new com­mu­ni­ties to par­tic­i­pate in Evidence2Success, a frame­work that guides pub­lic sys­tem lead­ers and com­mu­ni­ty rep­re­sen­ta­tives in work­ing togeth­er to improve child well-being. Evidence2Success is for civic lead­ers and com­mu­ni­ty res­i­dents who are ready to work togeth­er to invest a por­tion of their pub­lic funds to improve child well-being in a new way – to pre­vent prob­lems before they happen.

In 2015, the Foun­da­tion will select new Evidence2Success com­mu­ni­ties. We are seek­ing loca­tions where pub­lic sys­tem and com­mu­ni­ty lead­ers and mem­bers are com­mit­ted to work col­lab­o­ra­tive­ly, using data, to select and sup­port evi­dence-based pro­grams to improve the well-being of chil­dren and youth. 

Rep­re­sen­ta­tives of inter­est­ed com­mu­ni­ties are invit­ed to down­load the Request for Pro­pos­als and sub­mit appli­ca­tions by May 282015.

The Foun­da­tion will host an infor­ma­tion­al webi­nar to answer ques­tions about the selec­tion process at 1 p.m. EDT April 16. The webi­nar will fea­ture speak­ers who will describe how Evidence2Success works; the role of pre­ven­tion sci­ence and proven pro­grams in the approach; and how com­mu­ni­ties can shift pub­lic financ­ing to invest in what works. Par­tic­i­pants also will hear from a rep­re­sen­ta­tive of the Chil­dren and Youth Cab­i­net in Prov­i­dence, Rhode Island — the first Evidence2Success com­mu­ni­ty — about progress made using this approach.

In addi­tion to the Request for Pro­pos­als, a new series of one-page briefs describes key aspects of Evidence2Success. Learn about tools and tech­ni­cal assis­tance, the Youth Expe­ri­ence Sur­vey, the rela­tion­ship between the Foun­da­tion and Evidence2Success com­mu­ni­ties, pub­lic financ­ing strate­gies and data­bas­es for evi­dence-based pro­grams by down­load­ing these materials.

You may reg­is­ter for the April 16 webi­nar here. A record­ing of the webi­nar will be post­ed after the event.
