Social impact bonds: Phantom of the nonprofit sector
from Nonprofit Quarterly
What issue could bring Senator Ted Cruz, R-Texas, and Senator Al Franken, D-Minnesota, into bipartisan partnership? Social impact bonds (SIBs) — or pay-for-success (PFS), depending on one’s preferred terminology. Both legislators have been effusive about the reauthorization of the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA), and Franken seems to have made workforce development one of his top priority issues. A core component of WIOA noted by many of its supporters was the legislation’s $300 million commitment to pay-for-success programming aimed boosting effective, evidence-based efforts in job training.
