Currently, CNCS is soliciting comments concerning its proposed surveys to be conducted for its Process Evaluation of the Social Innovation Fund (SIF) Pay for Success (PFS) Grant Program. The study involves two major survey data collection activities: (1) Grantee Survey, and (2) Subgrantee/Subrecipient Survey. CNCS funded eight grantees in 2014 to provide technical assistance to community organizations and state or local government agencies (referred to as subgrantees/subrecipients) to assist them to determine feasibility of implementing PFS projects in a particular state or locality and to negotiate the terms and structure of the PFS deals (for PFS projects determined feasible). CNCS expects to fund approximately four additional grantees in 2015 and potentially an additional six grantees in 2016 (pending continuation of the grant program). Each grantee is expected to receive three years of funding. Responses will be collected from all current and future SIF PFS grantees and their subgrantees/ subrecipients annually for the duration of their SIF PFS funding. The completion of this information collection is not required to be considered for or to obtain grant funding support from the SIF PFS program.
