What We Do

Foremost, the Clearinghouse develops strong, trusting, and collaborative relationships with our partners so we can apply science in understanding your needs and challenges and test out potential solutions. Frequently, this means spending time with you; in your office, on your installations, and in military-impacted communities. Armed with in-depth knowledge, we work on investigating, developing, and delivering applied solutions. These solutions take on many forms; writing background research reports, conducting applied research studies, building workforce expertise through training and resource provision, implementing and evaluating evidence-informed programs and practices, and delivering objective data and policy-relevant findings so that critical decisions are based on the best science and evidence available.
