The 2016 Social Innovation Fund (SIF) Pay for Success (PFS) Administrative Data Pilot Grant Competition will provide up to $4.5 million in grants to eligible nonprofit organizations, including public or non-profit universities, faith-based organizations, and state and local governments (and other political subdivisions) for activities related to administrative data in order to develop high quality PFS projects. The goal of the Administrative Data Pilot competition is to support current PFS projects’ access to high-quality, less expensive data for evaluation purposes so they can improve the outcomes of their interventions.

Pay for Success offers innovative ways of partnering with philanthropic and private sector investors to create incentives for service providers to deliver better outcomes at lower cost—producing the highest return on taxpayer investments. The concept is simple: pay providers after they have demonstrated success, not based on the promise of success. Pay for Success financing is a mechanism for increasing investments in effective social interventions by changing the way government allocates and invests its resources – focusing on results and outcomes.  Learn more about Pay for Success at: http://www.whitehouse.gov/omb/factsheet/paying-for-success.
