Negotiation and Drafting of a Massachusetts “Pay for Success Contract”

Representation of MHSA in connection with the negotiation and drafting of a Massachusetts “Pay for Success Contract” to reduce chronic homelessness.  This program was the first in the nation to use social innovation financing to provide supportive housing for chronically homeless individuals. Goulston & Storrs attorneys helped MHSA structure their social service contracts with measurable benchmarks to help permanently house 500 people who have suffered at least one year of chronic homelessness. MHSA and the Mass Alliance for Supportive Housing collaborated with the United Way of Massachusetts Bay and Merrimack Valley and the Corporation for Supportive Housing to complete this incredible program.
