In 2014, Denver Mayor Michael B. Hancock announced a plan to better serve some of the city’s most vulnerable residents with supportive housing and intensive services. The Denver Supportive Housing Social Impact Bond Initiative (Denver SIB) fulfilled this commitment through innovative pay for success financing that helped fund supportive housing for hundreds of individuals who were experiencing chronic homelessness and frequently interacting with police, jails, and emergency rooms.


Join the Urban Institute and the City of Denver for a summary of the soon-to-be-released evaluation findings and pay for success outcomes, and a panel discussion about the implementation of the initiative and the implications of its success.
