ADVISORY: Getting to Results by Investing for Impact

Washington, D.C. – On Tuesday, November 5, the Center for American Progress will host a discussion with experts in the burgeoning field of social impact investing. Government has a real opportunity to invest in innovation in the social sector. In tight fiscal times, all levels of government seek innovative approaches to deliver better services and get better outcomes. The field of social impact investing has emerged as a way to forge public-private partnerships in pursuit of shared social goals in areas such as housing, clean energy, and—most recently—preventive social services. These new tools enable the resources of the private sector to partner with government to address some of our most pressing social problems.
