Pay for Success (PFS) is an innovative financing mechanism that provides up-front capital to scale social programs that have been proven to work. The Urban Institute is bringing evidence-based research and evaluation to the growing national conversation around PFS through our Pay for Success Initiative. Through toolkits and other support for service providers, investors, and government officials, Urban aims to bolster the use of evidence in the field.
