Pay for Success Feasibility Assessment of Expanding the Virginia Serious and Violent Offender Reentry Program (VASAVOR) in Fairfax County, Virginia

This report is a Pay for Success (PFS) feasibility assessment of expanding the Virginia Serious and Violent Offender Reentry Program (VASAVOR) in Fairfax County, Virginia. The University of Virginia Pay for Success Lab (PFS Lab) performed substantive research and stakeholder engagement from August to December 2016 on this topic. Pay for Success is a performance-based structure that drives financial resources towards serving local needs and measurably improving lives. The VASAVOR program, as designed, has many components that establish potential for an effective re-entry program for serious and violent offenders. However, for the various reasons described in this report, the PFS Lab does not recommend expanding the program with a PFS framework in Fairfax County, Virginia at this time.

Pay for Success Feasibility Assessment of Expanding High-Quality Three-Year-Old Preschool in the City of Charlottesville and Albemarle County, Virginia

This report is a Pay for Success (PFS) feasibility assessment of expanding three-year-old preschool in the City of Charlottesville and Albemarle County, Virginia. The University of Virginia Pay for Success Lab (UVa PFS Lab) performed substantive research and stakeholder engagement from August 2016 to January 2017 to explore this topic. Expanding high-quality preschool for low-income three-year-olds would improve educational, economic, and social outcomes for children, families, and the community at-large. The UVa PFS Lab recommends that the City of Charlottesville and Albemarle County begin to formalize a birth-to-five continuum of early childhood health and education services while considering whether PFS is a feasible approach for expanding the number of three-year-old preschool slots.
