The National Council on Crime and Delinquency (NCCD), an emerging leader in the Pay for Success movement, has issued a request for proposals for technical assistance related to feasibility studies for new projects.
NCCD is a national organization focused on child welfare and juvenile justice with offices in Oakland, Calif., Madison, Wis., and Washington, D.C. It is already involved in the development of PFS projects in California, and recently received $864,000 from the federal Social Innovation Fund (SIF) to help develop more projects.
The SIF grant supports the development of three projects aimed at scaling up strategies for reducing “racial disparities in the child welfare and juvenile justice systems.”
The projects will take place in three of the states with the highest racial disparities, which NCCD lists in its notice: Calif., Conn., Ill., Mass., Minn., Neb., N.J., N.Y., Penn., R.I., Wis., and Washington, D.C. Applications are limited to nonprofits or government agencies operating in those states.
