Pay for Success – Special Collection

The DaSy Center is working with the U.S. Department of Education’s Office of Special Education Programs (OSEP) and the Early Childhood Technical Assistance Center (ECTA) to explore the feasibility of using a Pay for Success (PFS) funding model with Part C and 619 preschool programs. PFS is an innovative financing mechanism that harnesses private capital to fund evidence-based prevention-focused programs or social services.

This page provides selected resources about PFS and Social Impact Bonds (a popular PFS model). This includes information about what PFS is, how to design and evaluate PFS initiatives, examples of current PFS efforts in early childhood, and examples of PFS in the news. Additional information is available in the presentation and recording of our 2016 PFS webinar.
