Pay For Success

Pay for Success Feasibility Studies


The Institute for Child Success provides technical assistance to help jurisdictions use Pay for Success financing to improve outcomes for children and families under a grant from the federal Social Innovation Fund (SIF) in the Corporation for National and Community Service, with matching support from the Pritzker Children’s Initiative, the United Way of Greenville County, and ReadyNation. ICS provides 9-12 months of technical assistance to determine whether PFS financing is a feasible way to improve child outcomes, resulting in a feasibility study for each jurisdiction. Learn more about our SIF work here.

ICS is pleased to release the findings from our first cohort of SIF-funded feasibility studies. For questions or to request additional supporting materials, please contact pfs@instituteforchildsuccess.org or the designated contact in each file.
