|CSH is active in more than a dozen communities designing and implementing supportive housing initiatives through Pay for Success. We leverage this financing model because at the very core of Pay for Success is the requirement that performance rise above promises. That’s why we are pleased the U.S. House of Representatives voted yesterday to approve the Social Impact Partnerships to Pay for Results Act (H.R. 5170).
This legislation puts the weight of the federal government behind the creation of public-private Pay for Success partnerships that harness philanthropic and other private-sector investments to scale up proven programs and interventions, such as supportive housing, which are already being successfully implemented by non-profits, charitable organizations and state and local governments across the country.
Our partners at America Forward have been strong advocates for H.R. 5170 and we join with them today in urging the U.S. Senate to act, concur with the House, and pass this bill as quickly as possible.
You can help too by contacting your U.S. Senators and asking them to vote for the Social Impact Partnerships to Pay for Results Act (H.R. 5170).
