About the Opportunity
Arnold Ventures’ (AV) Evidence-Based Policy team invites grant applications to conduct randomized controlled trials (RCTs) of social programs in any area of U.S. policy for which AV will fund the RCT and program delivery will be funded by another entity. The main goal in funding such RCTs is to build the body of programs rigorously shown to produce sizable, sustained effects on important life outcomes.
