The Stanford Center on Poverty and Inequality (CPI) and Third Sector Capital Partners (Third Sector) will partner on this Social Innovation Fund Pay for Success Administrative Data Pilot grant. This alliance brings together CPI's strong relationships with the government agencies providing access to administrative data and Third Sector's strong relationships with existing and future Pay for Success (PFS) projects. The CPI team has been carrying out some of the country's most influential analyses of tax, census, and program data. As one of the leading players in the PFS field, Third Sector has extensive experience in innovative public-private financing and currently guides some of the country's most promising PFS projects.

Through this SIF grant, CPI and Third Sector will improve the quality of the evidence used to evaluate PFS initiatives, focusing initially on projects addressing economic opportunity in California and Oregon.

San Diego County Health and Human Services Agency
San Diego, CA

The San Diego County Health and Human Services Agency provides a broad range of health and social services to promote wellness, self-sufficiency, and a better quality of life for individuals and families in San Diego County. The agency integrates health and social services through a unified service-delivery system that is family-focused and community-based.

San Diego County has recently established two pilot projects that focus on providing wrap-around social services and housing vouchers to the homeless. The county will use the services provided under the Administrative Data Pilot grant to understand how these initiatives can improve health care, housing, and employment outcomes.



Santa Cruz County Human Services Department
Santa Cruz, CA

The Human Services Department offers a wide range of programs and services to the Santa Cruz County community. The department provides safety net services to meet the basic needs of individuals and families, ensures the protection of children, the elderly, and dependent adults, and provides job search assistance and job training opportunities to help job-seekers become self-sufficient.

The Human Services Department will use the services provided under the Administrative Data Pilot grant to study self-sufficiency outcomes for individuals who participate in subsidized employment programs as part of CalWORKs. Administrative data will provide insight about outcomes after participants leave the program. Additionally, the county hopes to learn how the subsidized employment programs affect housing stability, substance use, and mental health.



Washington State Department of Early Learning
Olympia, WA

The Department of Early Learning is responsible for offering programs and services that support healthy child development and school readiness for the approximately 90,000 children born in Washington each year. Many of its programs and services are for children who may be at risk of starting kindergarten not ready to succeed.

The Department of Early Learning will use the services provided under the Administrative Data Pilot grant to evaluate their early childhood intervention programs using state-level administrative data. This will advance the state’s ongoing efforts to integrate individual-level home visitation and early intervention data with administrative sources on child and family outcomes such as health and education.
