Perspectives on Michigan Value-Based Purchasing & Pay for Success

In a new report, LISC's Pay for Success team and its partners built out the tools to address social determinants of health leveraging the innovative Pay for Success model. Their research included interviews with managed care organizations and two focus groups to collect participant reflections on their personal experiences. Due to timing, the focus group data was not incorporated into the original report. Below, the PFS team walks through the additional perspectives that were gained from our partner, CHRT's, focus group research. 

Innovation in Child Welfare Through Pay for Success

LISC’s Pay for Success team shares an update on Safe Families for Children and our new report that covers the barriers and opportunities for innovation within the child welfare system. Below, the team provides insight into two new key opportunities that have presented themselves since the completion of the report.  

Making a City Yours: The Story of Milwaukee’s ACRE Program

In 2004, Mark Eppli noticed a problem. The Marquette University professor became acutely aware of the critically low rates of people of color working in commercial real estate development in Milwaukee. Not one to walk away from a problem, he set off to find a solution with the help of Milwaukee’s community leaders, politicians and local organizations. What he built became the Associates in Commercial Real Estate, or ACRE, a program that has become a mainstay in the city. LISC’s Tope Folarin shares the story of how ACRE got started, the impact it has had in the city, and the inspiring graduates who help keep it moving forward.
