Each quarter, Policy Research publishes an impact report spotlighting our work across the country via our technical assistance centers, projects, and fee-for-service activities. The impact report provides a quantitative and qualitative look at the number of trainings, site visits, policies and practices changed, meetings and events, public products, and professional presentations released to the field over the past quarter. Each impact report spotlights three activities and provides an overview of the activity and its influence on the field.

At the end of each year, Policy Research combines all quarterly impact reports into an annual report, providing an at-a-glance look at the firm’s impact.
