Social Impact Partnership Legislation Promotes What Works

Too often, Washington focuses on inputs instead of outcomes. Social impact partnerships are an innovative way to help our most vulnerable populations improve their lives through successfully proven programs – and that do so in a fiscally responsible manner. 

It’s time we shift the focus to achieving desired outcomes, carefully evaluating our social programs, and only paying for what works.
