The purpose of this Preschool Pay For Success (PFS) Feasibility Pilot is to encourage State and local PFS activity for preschool programs by providing grants for Feasibility Studies.1 The Feasibility Studies will determine if PFS is a viable and appropriate strategy to implement preschool programs that are high-quality and yield meaningful results.

The Department, in consultation with the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), developed the Preschool PFS Feasibility Pilot.

The ultimate aim of the Preschool PFS Feasibility Pilot is to improve early learning outcomes through a High-Quality Pay for Success Project by providing grants for Feasibility Studies.

This pilot does not limit feasibility studies to programs that meet the definition of ``high-quality'' preschool used by the Preschool Development Grants program in its 2014 grant competition in order to allow the PFS demonstrations to demonstrate high-quality in different ways, including through the impacts that the pilots are able to achieve.

In this way, such projects could further develop the evidence-base of programs that are demonstrated to be effective.2 However, the Preschool PFS Feasibility Pilot does not fund the implementation of preschool services.

These Feasibility Studies will test the viability of PFS for preschool models designed to effectively serve the Target Population, and identify a broad range of potential Outcome Measures designed to both demonstrate improved student outcomes and result in potential cost savings to school districts, Local Governments, and States, as well as provide more general benefits to society.
