Outcomes-Based Project Assessment Tool


As funders and providers of social services seek to improve program impact through new funding models which tie outcomes to funding, they may ask, what makes a strong outcomes-based project? Building off of an existing tool designed specifically for Pay for Success projects, this Outcomes-Based Project Assessment Tool is designed to help stakeholders building any kind of outcomes-based project do so in a way that places evidence and data at the center and ensures partners have the appropriate levels of capacity and commitment. Launching an outcomes-based project can be a winding road. Use this tool to help navigate your course, figure out the critical points along the way, and ultimately arrive at your destination of improving social services and the public good.
