Last week I had the opportunity to present on the opportunities and challenges presented by Pay For Success programs in early childhood. Two early childhood PFS are already in progress in the U.S. – in Chicago and Utah — and another has just been launched in South Carolina. PFS programs have great potential to inject capital into effective social programs who sorely need it. However, they must be structured in such a way as to ensure program effectiveness and quality implementation; to minimize risk for investors; and to enable scaling and sustainability.
