The Social Impact Partnerships to Pay for Results Act (SIPPRA)A Federal Opportunity to Pay for Proven Outcomes
Last year a bipartisan congressional effort resulted in a new $100 million fund available to states and local governments seeking funding for exceptional social service programs. The Social Impact Partnerships to Pay for Results Act (SIPPRA) gives governments a new opportunity to take advantage of federal funding to pay for proven outcomes.

She demonstrates that a different way of funding the system is possible and aligning resources with measurable results will effectively help communities in need. Watch her full speech below.
