"Once known primarily for evaluations of state welfare-to-work programs, today MDRC is also studying public school reforms, employment programs for ex-prisoners and people with disabilities, and programs to help low-income people succeed in college. We have worked in nearly every state and most major cities; we also helped create a sister organization in Canada and are currently managing a large project in the United Kingdom with British partners. The five main policy areas in which we work, illustrate the breadth and diversity of our current projects. Those areas include:

  • Promoting Family Well-Being and Child Development
  • Improving Public Education
  • Promoting Successful Transitions to Adulthood
  • Supporting Low-Wage Workers and Communities
  • Overcoming Barriers to Employment" from web site
