Over the past 15 years, ICS–affiliated staff have been national leaders in developing and disseminating evidence-based registries. Working for multiple federal agencies, our team has operated the Model Programs Guide, the National Registry of Evidence-based Practices and Programs, Youth.gov, R2d2, and CrimeSolutions.gov.

Our work on these registries has shown us how programs need to be reviewed and shared so the people who need them can find and use them. Working across all of our content areas, evidence-based registry composition and management of these broad and diverse compilations has allowed us to review more than 1,500 evidence-based programs.

These registries and associated materials have been a resource for practitioners and communities seeking to know what works, what is promising, and what does not work in juvenile justice, delinquency prevention, and child protection and safety.
