Pay for Success (PFS) Demonstration Competition is Now Open

The Pay for Success Permanent Supportive Housing Demonstration Notice of Funding Availability (PFS Demonstration NOFA) has been posted to Grants.gov. PFS Demonstration application materials are now available on Grants.gov.

Submission Deadline:
Friday, February 12, 2016 at 11:59:59 PM EST

What is Pay for Success?

Pay for Success is an innovative financing model that leverages philanthropic and private dollars to provide assistance up front, with the government paying after they generate results. Unlike programs structured around processes rather than measurable results, PFS provides greater flexibility for state, local, and tribal governments to implement evidence-based solutions, carefully test promising innovations, and scale programs that work.

The PFS Demonstration is an opportunity to test the effectiveness of using a PFS financing model to fund PSH using a Housing First approach for the target population: people experiencing homelessness with frequent contact with the criminal justice, homeless services, and health care systems.
