HUD-DOJ Pay for Success (PFS) Permanent Supportive Housing (PSH) Demonstration Infographic: Target Populations and Target Outcomes
The U.S. Departments of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) and Justice (DOJ) launched the Pay for Success Permanent Supportive Housing Demonstration in 2016. HUD-DOJ are conducting a formative evaluation to assess whether providing permanent supportive housing (PSH) within a pay-for-success (PFS) framework is a successful and cost-effective way of using PSH to provide housing stability and reduce social service use and recidivism for a population continually cycling between homeless services and the criminal justice system. PFS is an innovative financing model that leverages philanthropic and private dollars to provide up-front financing, with the government paying after they generate results, i.e. “pay for success.” The current formative evaluation deliverables include an Infographic that tracks demonstration grantee progress through the PFS lifecycle. This Infographic provides information on target populations and target outcomes through Feburary 2020 and will be updated semi-annually.
