NEW CNCS Strategic Evidence Plan

CNCS’s Strategic Evidence Plan provides a roadmap for generating credible, relevant, and actionable information about the agency’s organizational effectiveness, outcomes of its national service programs, and ultimately, extent to which it is achieving its mission. This plan is designed to provide the executive leadership, management team, and staff with the information needed for strategic learning and decision-making to ensure the efficiency and effectiveness of CNCS and its programs.

In Fiscal Year (FY) 2019, CNCS invested close to $9 million in research, evaluations, and evaluation technical assistance. The agency’s FY 2020 priorities build on these FY 2019 investments. Some priority projects are central evidence building activities that are expected to be a priority each year. In other cases, projects will be designed, implemented, and completed within a given fiscal year. Priorities will be reviewed and updated annually based on what was learned in the prior year.
