Pay for Success: Leadership Team Worksheet

Feasibility study working takes place through phone calls, face-to-face meetings, and larger group gatherings. The team members for these meetings should be determined based on your community. It may be useful to agree up front the contribution of team members to these calls/meetings, as well as their wider roles in the project. This worksheet will help you establish your design team roles and responsibilities of the leadership team.

Pay for Success: Potential End Payers Worksheet

Pay-for-success contracts are ones in which an end payer (usually a county or state government) agrees to pay a specified amount (“tariff” or “rate”) for outcomes achieved (“payment triggers”). For example, in the Denver Pay for Success program, Denver City and County have agreed to pay a set tariff for each day spent in stable accommodation by an identified cohort of chronically homeless individuals. This form will help you to think through the potential end payers in your area.

Pay for Success: Initiative Mapping

All communities have multiple initiatives and projects overlapping in the supportive housing or pay-for-success space. While not all initiatives are relevant, it can be helpful to list the ones you think might directly impact the Pay-for-Success work. This could include a city or county’s new initiative to integrate data or an initiative to expand Medicaid reimbursements. Use this worksheet to list out all of your community initiatives.

Pay for Success: Data Systems Landscape

Access to and analysis of data forms a core component of the feasibility study. Data is used to:

  • Define the appropriate target population group
  • Baseline service usage for the target population
  • Estimate cost avoidance and other benefits from supportive housing
  • Assess risk for private investors looking to finance part of the program

Relevant data can be challenging to access. This form can help bring together information about which systems exist and who to contact for each.

Key Components of the Pay for Success Feasibility Process

In the development of a Pay for Success (PFS) Initiative and the feasibility technical assistance process, there is a series of key components related to actions that need to be completed and decisions that need to be made by the core project team charged with design and implementation in order for the PFS initiative to move forward. This document outlines the components and goals for each stage.

Health and Housing Acronyms, Terms and Definitions

This resource was created in 2016 by CSH in coordination with the Metropolitan Washington Council of Governments and the Regional Primary Care Coalition. It was first intended for county and state planning meetings that include leaders from housing, health, and homeless sectors. Each system has its own set of acronyms that its members use fluently in conversation. When bringing multiple systems together for integrated approaches to problem solving using acronyms can lead to confusion around their meaning. Having all commonly used acronyms in one place for leaders to reference helps to keep conversation flowing. The list below includes direct definitions pulled from the sources included in the bibliography. In some cases, definitions were combined or edited for brevity.
