NFF: Congratulations on reaching contract with two projects that are going to make a significant difference in the lives of those in need in Salt Lake County.
Third Sector: Thank you! In developing its new Pay for Success Initiative, Salt Lake County took the unique step to concurrently address two complex issues with a profound, negative impact on the community. Launching the Criminal Justice PFS Project (R.E.A.C.H) and the Homelessness (Homes Not Jail) PFS Project in tandem, the County is changing the way it approaches these two highly inter-related issues.

If successful, the County will minimize the service burden currently faced by the jail and emergency shelter, and in doing so will help more than 500 underserved, vulnerable individuals.Read More
