Program Endorsements and “the Lists”
What Are “the Lists”?
National agencies and organizations endorse programs that have met a set of criteria for best practices. These endorsements are often referred to as “the lists.”
The programs on these lists have gone through evaluation studies that show positive results. Some of the lists require a program’s development to be evidence-based.
