The Community Outcomes Fund

Providing flexible, impact-driven capital to expand high-quality human services in low-income communities.

Outcomes financing represents a next-generation public-private partnership that combines market discipline with performance management, realigning government spending with evidence-based solutions to social challenges.

Driving better results for underserved, and often under-estimated communities.

Despite significant public spending, large swaths of individuals and families find themselves in a cycle of poverty and lack access to quality education, jobs, or other opportunities to thrive. Policy decisions are often disconnected from the evidence of what works and too often, government dollars are not aligned with the intended outcomes. Yet, when those government-funded human service programs don’t generate meaningful outcomes, it is individuals, families, and communities that lose.

By enabling government to link spending on human services with outcomes, the Community Outcomes Fund drives accountability and transparency and ultimately better results for communities.

More than 50 million families in the U.S. benefit from human services programs.

The government spends more than $800 billion per year on these programs.

Yet bi-partisan leaders posit that less than 1% of the funding is linked to evidence of actual impact.

See the change that’s already happening in communities.

By building public-private partnerships that align government spending with outcomes in communities, the Community Outcomes Fund aims to bring accountability and transparency to human services and expand access to economic opportunity for those who have historically been left behind.

“I’m confident that our students ended up in a better place than they would have had we not set clear benchmarks and put in place an accountability framework through our outcomes-based financing structure.”
Dr. Kandace Thomas, Executive Director, First Eight Memphis
"We know that early childhood education is a critical piece of a child’s life. That’s why we’ve worked hard to find resources to preserve and expand pre-k seats. I can think of no better cause and use of our resources."
Mayor Lee Harris, Shelby County, TN
“After I graduated… JVS hosted a career fair… We did not go in search of it, the jobs came in search of us… I have been working one year at Spaulding Rehab Network and I’m loving it.”
Veronique O’Meally, JVS CNA program graduate and employee of Spaulding Rehabilitation Network
“We spend hundreds of millions of dollars a year on human services, often without clearly defining outcomes and how to measure them. The funds we committed to the early education social impact bond allow us to do just that.”
