Treasury Releases Updated Economic Recovery Research Priorities
On November 9, the U.S. Treasury Department released an updated Economic Recovery Learning Agenda. This learning agenda is designed to guide research by Treasury, other federal partners, external researchers, and recipient governments to understand the impact of the country’s economic recovery programs on households, organizations, communities, and governments.
This updated economic recovery learning agenda incorporates changes based on the extensive stakeholder engagement that Treasury conducted to receive feedback on a draft version of the learning agenda that was released earlier this year. In response to this feedback, the updated learning agenda contains more details on specific programs’ evaluation priorities, more information on the data available to conduct research, broader recognition of key stakeholders, and a greater emphasis on equity.
As a next step, Treasury is interested in collaborating with external researchers to answer the specific evaluation questions in the learning agenda — if you are interested in this kind of collaboration, please email Gina.Rendina@treasury.gov.
