Target population Priority population defined Detailed eligibility and enrollment criteria


Cost benefit analysis Local value case examples show compelling impacts using pre/post analysis Analysis of local health data if further health system involvement

End payer identification Interest from local healthcare systems Work with City officials to determine interest


Payment terms Options for payment terms included in report Deeper exploration of metrics and terms following end payer commitment



CSH believes Virginia Supportive Housing, alongside its partner Homeward, has the opportunity to successfully finish designing, structuring and implementing a Pay for Success supportive housing project if there is commitment from the City of Richmond or a health system payer to making success payments for outcomes achieved.

CSH has documented a number of next steps for finalizing outcomes of interest, success metric payment terms and evaluation design for when an end payer is identified.
