We hosted a conference call on May 20, 3:30 to 5:00 pm ET of the Kauffman-Partnership Early Childhood Finance Innovation Working Group. This working group is a joint project of the Kauffman Foundation and the Partnership for America's Economic Success. The working group is focused on developing income-contingent and performance-contingent financing arrangements for early childhood programs. The working group's goal this year is to complete at least two workable income-contingent finance model contracts that can be the basis for sound entrepreneurial generation of investment-worthy non-profit and for-profit assets.
At this point the prekindergarten-special ed model is most promising. A nurse visitation model should be workable also, and there appear to be important possibilities in dental care, certain child neglect and abuse prevention and treatment approaches, and MELF type scholarship programs. Dial-in information is available upon request. To request this information please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
