Launched in 2015, the Policy Innovation Lab is a special initiative of the McCourt School of Public Policy.

Beginning as a pilot, the initiative set out to bolster McCourt’s commitment and involvement with the local community in Washington, DC  by looking beyond the Federal presence and focusing on DC’s neighborhoods, communities, and the people living in them.  Social and economic indicators and overpowering issues related to equity, equality, and opportunity further narrowed the Lab’s attention to communities and people living east of the Anacostia River in Wards 7 and 8.
