New Resources on State Refor(u)m

We hope that many of you have been taking advantage of the excellent state-based resources that are available at This website has been designed as a place where states can share information and documents and discuss pressing issues. State Refor(u)m allows state officials to “steal” work from their other state colleagues, enabling them to build on the work of others rather than recreating documents, policy briefs, and other items from scratch.

A few examples of recent resources coming from State Refor(u)m include:

  • Level 1 Establishment Grant applications: State Refor(u)m has posted several of the state grant submissions.

  • A blog post which summarizes some of the key themes in the early establishment grants.

  • Webinars, including, most recently, an archived webinar held on September 21 that highlighted the stakeholder engagement efforts of three states: Colorado, New Jersey and Rhode Island. To view the webinar, click here.
