The Social Impact Partnerships to Pay for Results Act (The Results Act) established a $100 million fund to help state and local governments launch Pay for Success initiatives to improve outcomes for people and communities. The Results Act creates an opportunity for state and local governments to leverage federal resources to advance policy initiatives while building a foundation of outcomes-based decision making. Results Act funding offers an unprecedented opportunity for government agencies to partner with high-performing service providers and tap into private investments to impact high-priority social issues such as reducing childhood poverty, lowering maternal death rates, strengthening workforce skills and improving elementary education.

On February 27 at 11 a.m. Pacific / 2 p.m. Eastern, experts from the Governing Institute and Social Finance, a national nonprofit dedicated to mobilizing capital to drive social progress, will break down the Results Act and answer your questions about how to apply for Results Act funds.

Social Finance pioneered the Pay for Success field in the United States. By enlisting private capital for public good; using data and evidence effectively; and uniting uncommon partners - governments, investors, and nonprofits - around a common purpose, Pay for Success can measurably improve the lives of those in need.
