The National Council on Crime and Delinquency (NCCD) will hold an informational webinar to discuss an upcoming request for proposals (RFP) related to its pay for success (PFS) projects, including the scope of eligible applicants and a timeline for the release of the RFP and acceptance of submissions.
The webinar, which will be held on Nov. 20 at 1pm, will also address the use of PFS models to address racial disparities in the child welfare and juvenile justice systems.
The National Council on Crime and Delinquency (NCCD) was among seven organizations that received substantial federal grants to aid in planning, feasibility studies, deal structuring, and/or pipeline development of potential PFS projects.
The awards came directly from the Social Innovation Fund (SIF), a Corporation of National and Community Service program launched in 2009 to help support organizations that use innovative evidence-based program models.
All 2014 grantees will hold competitions of their own to identify sub-grantees that would be a good fit for a PFS project. The chosen organizations will then receive grants or services of at least $50,000 over 3 years along with technical assistance and capacity-building services.
