This feasibility assessment explores the City of Boise’s ability to utilize Pay for Success financing to address issues related to chronic homelessness in Ada County, Idaho.

The content of this report is drawn from an extensive review of relevant literature (academic and programmatic); an inventory and review of relevant existing data; budget scans to identify spending priorities and potential areas for costs savings and/or avoidance; interviews and meetings with various project-related stakeholders including the local Continuum of Care; Boise/Ada County Housing and Homelessness Roundtable meetings, and financial modeling (including analysis of the costs related to multiple homeless interventions versus the benefits (e.g., cost savings and/or avoidance) of those interventions).
