Pay for Success is in full swing at the Sorenson Impact Center. A competition and a new initiative were unveiled this week.
The Center — part of the David Eccles School of Business — has awarded seven subgrants to government entities and non-profit service providers, allowing them to participate in a Pay for Success feasibility program. The new subgrantees aim to implement interventions in the issue areas of disability services, contraceptive access and education, recidivism among young adults, mentorship for at-risk youth, health and education for children with asthma, and early childhood education.

The Center has also re-opened its nationwide Pay for Success competition in hopes of developing new projects that will provide high-impact social solutions to improve the lives of those in need. Up to three communities will receive technical assistance from Sorenson Impact Center as well as a cash grant of up to $100,000 to help them achieve long-term success.
