America Forward: Statement Applauding Introduction of the Social Impact Partnership Act

“Members of the America Forward Coalition applaud Senators Orrin Hatch (R-UT) and Michael Bennet (D-CO) on the introduction of the bipartisan Social Impact Partnership Act. The bill would create a federal fund to promote a variety of pay for success approaches and also test social innovation financing of pay for success strategies. In times of greater demand for social services and tighter budgets, we must work together to direct government resources to programs that work and that measurably improve people’s lives. This bipartisan bill has the potential to support high-impact service providers, drive new resources to effective social programs, and incentivize more efficient use of government resources to reward what works. The America Forward Coalition looks forward to continuing our work with Senators Hatch and Bennet to help advance this critical legislation through the process.”
