Organization: Results for America

Role: Manager, Local Practice, Infrastructure

Location: Flexible


Organization Overview

Results for America is the leading, national nonprofit organization helping policymakers at all

levels of government harness the power of evidence and data to solve the world’s greatest

challenges. Our mission is to make investing in what works the “new normal,” so that, one day,

all government leaders use rigorous evidence and quality data to inform important policy and

funding decisions. We believe that data-driven and evidence-based policy decisions could

significantly increase the impact of the over $1 trillion that governments spend annually to

address the needs of the most vulnerable Americans.

Founded in 2012, RFA spent its first three years partnering with policy innovators to build the

credibility of evidence-based policymaking, securing early and important wins in education,

expanding its work to multiple levels of government and driving awareness and demand through

carefully orchestrated education and communication campaigns. During its second phase

(2015-2018), RFA worked to demonstrate the power of evidence-based policymaking in ways

that resonate with an even broader universe of elected officials and policymakers. Now in its

third phase of work, RFA intends to demonstrate that governments at all levels can make faster,

more lasting progress in accelerating economic mobility for residents when they use evidence

and data in decision-making. By creating specific issue-area wins, RFA will further cement

support for evidence-based policymaking among all policymakers as the “new normal.”


Department Overview

RFA has organized a “practice” at every level of government: federal, state, and local. As part of

its Local Practice, RFA has committed to supporting tribal, local, and state governments to make

the most of the historic opportunity presented by the recovery investments from the American

Rescue Plan (ARP) and Bipartisan Infrastructure Law (BIL). Through this work, RFA will

encourage these governments to leverage recovery dollars to make investments in

evidence-based approaches and deliver measurable, equitable access to opportunities and

positive outcomes for their residents.


Position Overview

The Manager will be a dedicated member of RFA’s Local Practice team. This team member will

contribute to the Local Infrastructure Hub (the Hub) in order to support local governments in

navigating the historic opportunity provided by BIL.

Results for America is seeking a team member who works well in a collaborative, cross-cutting

team environment, proactively seeks out new challenges, and is passionate about strengthening

governments’ ability to promote equitable outcomes for all residents.
