Finalists selected for the ‘Pay for Success’ program

Posted:

ALBANY, N.Y.—Governor Andrew Cuomo announced that four finalists have been selected for the "Pay for Success" program.

Also known as "Social Impact Bonds", the program is designed to transform how government does business while serving New Yorkers and providing additional resources for innovative social services programs.

"This public-private partnership model is one we see working over and over again and one that saves taxpayers money and improves how we deliver services here in New York ," said Governor Cuomo.

Pay for Success projects are public-private partnerships where the State sets performance goals and private and philanthropic investors provide the funds for the program. The State repays investors based on the program's performance, and only makes payments if the goals are achieved following a rigorous independent evaluation

The four finalists selected were the following:

  • · Nurse-Family Partnership: The Nurse-Family Partnership program provides nurse home-visiting services to first-time expectant, low-income mothers to improve pregnancy outcomes, child health, development, and self-sufficiency. This proposal plans to serve approximately 2,200 families in Monroe and Onondaga Counties and NYC.

 

  • · Primary Care Development Corporation (PCDC) / The Institute for Family Health / Open Door Family Medical Centers, Inc. / HRHCare Community Health (HRHCare) / Hudson Information Technology for Community Health (HITCH): The National Diabetes Prevention Program aims to reduce diabetes for at-risk populations. The proposal plans to serve approximately 3,570 prediabetic patients in Westchester, Putnam, Rockland, Ulster, Dutchess, Sullivan, and Greene counties and in NYC.

 

  • · Montefiore Medical Center / Children's Aid Society: Enhanced school-based health centers would reach high-risk students with asthma care and pregnancy prevention services. The proposal plans to serve approximately 8,500 students at high schools located in the Bronx and North Shore of Staten Island.

 

  • · Hillside Children's Center: The Intensive Community Asset Program (I-CAP) provides diversion alternatives to Probation Officers and Family Court Judges for placement and detention of high-risk youth. The proposal plans to serve approximately 835 youth in Onondaga, Monroe and up to three additional counties.

New York State will hold a symposium at the State Capitol on Friday, March 7, at 10:30 a.m.
