Today, the Sorenson Impact Center at the University of Utah’s David Eccles School of Business announced the selection of 3 governmental entities and 4 nonprofit service providers to receive technical assistance and grant funding as part of the Corporation for National and Community Service’s Social Innovation Fund (SIF) Pay for Success Program.

Across the country, governmental entities and nonprofit organizations are learning about and engaging in a new field called Pay for Success (PFS) – an innovative public-private partnership strategy focused on what works in social science research and dedicated to driving government resources to interventions tied to measurable impacts in the community. The governments and nonprofits selected will receive funding and technical support to develop PFS projects that advance and evaluate high-impact social interventions, in order to produce measurable and meaningful outcomes for individuals and communities.
