We are proud to share the news that NCCD has received a substantial federal investment from the Corporation for National and Community Service’s (CNCS) Social Innovation Fund (SIF). The news was announced today in Washington, DC, at an event co-hosted by the US National Advisory Board on Impact Investing, SIF, and the Beeck Center for Social Innovation at Georgetown University.

We are proud to share the news that NCCD has received a substantial federal investment from the Corporation for National and Community Service’s (CNCS) Social Innovation Fund (SIF). The news was announced today in Washington, DC, at an event co-hosted by the US National Advisory Board on Impact Investing, SIF, and the Beeck Center for Social Innovation at Georgetown University. The investment aims to advance and evaluate emerging models that align payment for social services with verified social outcomes.

Five years into the initiative launched by President Obama in 2009, the SIF and its non-federal partners have committed to invest more than $700 million in effective community solutions. NCCD’s project aims to assess feasibility and develop Pay for Success capacity in jurisdictions from the states with the highest rates of racial and ethnic disparities in these systems. Those states are Wisconsin, California, New Jersey, Massachusetts, Connecticut, Illinois, Pennsylvania, New York, Minnesota, Rhode Island, Nebraska, and Washington, DC.

In the next several months NCCD will hold an open competition to select sub-recipients to receive technical assistance for up to two years. NCCD’s project will be supported by partners Potrero Impact Advisors, the CUNY Institute for State and Local Governance, Kirkland & Ellis, and the Raben Group.

We are eager to build on the Pay for Success work we have already begun, and grateful for this new opportunity to improve outcomes for children, young people, and families. We also invite you to read our recent blog series on Pay for Success for a primer from some of the field’s top innovators.
