Institute for Child Success SIPPRA
Hello Family Early Childhood Pay for Success Project, Spartanburg, SC
The Institute for Child Success (ICS) engaged the Sorenson Impact Center to assist them in project development, outcome selection and payment determination, economic and financial modeling and structuring, and in preparing materials for an application to the federal Social Impact Partnerships to Pay for Results Act (SIPPRA) for outcome payments. The Hello Family project included 4 interventions in a community based prenatal to age 8 early childhood continuum of services in Spartanburg, SC.

The Partner

Institute for Child Success, Maycomb Capital, City of Spartanburg, S.C.

The Challenge

As a continuation of previous work we had done with them, the Institute for Child Success asked us to build a financial model and help attain a grant from the SIPPRA legislation.

The Outcome

The engagement resulted in the launch of the project at the end of 2021. Approximately $7.5 million in capital raised to fund four interventions over 5 years that will improve birth outcomes, kindergarten readiness, reduce child maltreatment and enhance family stability.

The Impact

SIPPRA grants will allow organizations across the country attain funding to support social impact services. ICS would be able to finance the support and education of children nationwide through this work.
