Evaluations can help lawmakers identify what benefits a state is getting for the activities it undertakes and the money it spends. Learn about the use of cost benefit analysis to measure the return on public
investments and how it differs from a fiscal note.

About the Working Families Forum

Since 2003, the NCSL/AECF Partnership on Family Economic Success has held a yearly meeting to give lawmakers a chance to convene with their colleagues and discuss solutions to the challenges faced by low-income working families. Legislative leadership from 10 states send small teams of legislators to the forum. Participants hear from leading experts and practitioners and develop an action plan that is relevant to their state.
