Great Ideas for States


Anyone looking to change local policies and outcomes either through legislation, activism, or partnerships should look to the Initiative for Military Families’ signature product: “Great Ideas for States.” It’s important to note that states account for much of the spending and oversight on education, child welfare, consumer protection, and health and human services, all of which directly impact military families.

Our user-friendly ideas offer a large menu of ways to support military families. We aim to facilitate dialogue and action; if you see an idea you like, we encourage you to contact the experts via the information provided in each section, or to reach out to us directly at [email protected].
