SIPPRA - Pay for Results

The Social Impact Partnerships to Pay for Results Act (SIPPRA) was signed into law on February 9, 2018.

SIPPRA Overview

The Social Impact Partnerships to Pay for Results Act (SIPPRA) was signed into law on February 9, 2018 and is intended to improve the effectiveness of certain social services. The federal government will pay for a project only if predetermined project outcomes have been met and validated by an independent evaluator, a system called a “pay for results partnership.” Congress appropriated $100 million for the SIPPRA program to implement “Social Impact Partnership Demonstration Projects” and feasibility studies to prepare for those projects.  The SIPPRA program is largely administered by the Department of the Treasury (Treasury).

Additional Information about SIPPRA and the Federal Interagency Council on Social Impact Partnerships can be found on the SIPPRA page hosted by The Office of Management and Budget.
