New Jersey

The FY21 New Jersey budget and FY22 budget each appropriated $1 million in funding for the New Jersey Policy Lab, led by Rutgers University, that will contribute high-quality, nonpartisan research and analysis of policy-based solutions facing New Jersey. The initiative, granted by the New Jersey Office of the Secretary of Higher Education, will also build coalitions across governments and community organizations to support evidence-based policy initiatives, assist stakeholders in troubleshooting implementation issues, provide data modeling for policy recommendations, and evaluate the impacts of proposed statewide public policy measures.
