Outcomes Rate Card Development Competition

Social Finance is seeking government and/or nonprofit applicants nationwide for free technical assistance to develop outcomes rate cards, a standardized PFS contracting approach to serve large constituencies by defining outcomes (e.g. getting a job, maintaining employment, boosting earnings) and paying providers as they achieve those outcomes. In this competition, Social Finance will select up to three Service Recipients to receive technical assistance in order to develop an outcomes rate card, procure service providers to deliver on target outcomes, and launch PFS projects with procured providers.

Applications must be submitted by April 10, 2017. Learn more here.
