Since 2020, the State of Texas has administered eight grant programs that define and prioritize evidence of effectiveness.
The Texas Department of Family & Protective Services defines and prioritizes evidence of effectiveness in its Nurse-Family Partnership program to develop and expand evidence-based nurse home visiting programs, the Community Youth Development program, the Healthy Outcomes through Prevention and Early Support (HOPES) program, and the Texas Service Members, Veterans and Families program.
The Texas Health and Human Services Commission defines and prioritizes evidence of effectiveness in its Adult Mental Health Recovery-Based Outreach Services in Peer-Focused Environments and Veterans and Family Alliance Grant Program programs.
The One Star Foundation (a nonprofit that administers state Americorps funding), through the Texas State Service Commission, defines and prioritizes evidence of effectiveness through its AmeriCorps programs.
Additional information on the use of evidence of effectiveness in these programs is available on the Honor Roll of State Grant Programs that Define and Prioritize Evidence of Effectiveness.
