Rfa continues to build a movement around evidence-based policymaking with the current goal of getting the majority of "early adopters" of the practices to support and implement evidence-based policies. To accomplish this goal, rfa communicates research and solutions to policy makers at all levels of government and to the general public, through a variety of channels and media. In 2018, rfa published pieces in governing, route fifty, tulsa world, vox, gov tech news, the bond buyer, and data smart city solutions (via harvard's ash center). Rfa also continued to build its moneyball champions program, in which prominent policy makers and government leaders publicly support the use of evidence and data, growing the group from 150 to 225 champions. During the year, rfa also partnered with key associations, including the national league of cities and the bloomberg harvard city leaders institute to offer trainings to their participants and members.

Results for America has been increasingly working with government decision-makers and staff, together with non-profit service providers and philanthropists to address challenges in education, workforce, and economic mobility through the increased use of evidence and data. In education, Results for America expanded its state education agency fellowship by 4 states, to a total of 9. With rfa's support, these fellows have been implementing plans to strengthen their agencies' capacity to use data and evidence in decision-making. In 2018, early Results from the work included Ohio shifting $33m in federal striving readers grant funding to evidence-based programs in 46 school districts, paving the way for improved outcomes for students now in more effective reading programs.
