Notes PHILADELPHIA – Today, the Kenney administration formally launched GovLabPHL, a multi-agency team led by the Mayor’s Policy Office focused on developing innovative and evidence-based practice in city government. The development of GovLabPHL stemmed from City Accelerator, which was an initiative of the Citi Foundation and Living Cities to promote innovation in local government. The City received the Living Cities grant in September 2014 to increase access to our public assistance programs. It was at this time that the City started to experiment with behavioral economics, using design research methods to simplify complex processes and increase access to government programs and services.
