The Urban Institute conducts research to understand and solve real-world challenges from health and tax policy to the well-being of families and neighborhoods. They serve as a source of knowledge and data for Pay For Success (PFS) projects nationwide.
PFS is an innovative financing mechanism that shifts financial risk from the government to a new investor to cover the up-front costs of scaling an evidence-based social programs that serve people in need. PFS needed a website that presented this information in a bold and understandable way to support this impactful work.
CREATING A COMMUNITY OF PRACTICE FOR PFS STAKEHOLDERS
Urban wanted to build the PFS web portal, which would be a community portal for people and organizations developing, implementing, or evaluating PFS projects. The portal includes the Support Center, a library of tools, and the PFS Perspectives blog. Community members - including governments, investors, service providers, and more - now have a digital home for sharing best practices and promoting new ideas.

organization dedicated to
success. The Pay For Success
portal pulls together expert insight
and analysis, helping make PFS
projects work better for the
people they serve, and the layout
ensures that knowledge is
DESIGNING WITH ATRIUM
Atrium, Phase2’s Drupal distribution for collaboration, served as a starting framework for their digital platform, helping Urban Institute save time and money. The PFS portal is an example of the beautiful front-end design now possible in Atrium 2.60.
