The mission of the Colorado Evaluation and Action Lab (Colorado Lab) is to improve services to Colorado residents, by working with government and community partners to conduct research and translate it into action.

Our work is initially guided by priorities set by the Colorado Governor’s Office, surfaced through conversations with state agency leaders. The current priorities are:

  • Recidivism Reduction
  • Affordable Housing
  • Prevention and Early Intervention for System Involved Youth
  • Good Government and Efficiency Projects
  • Marijuana-Funded Programs
