Preparing Prevention for Investment

PEPR offers a number of resources for preparing prevention programs and policies for investment. Investing in prevention is not simply writing a check. Investing in prevention includes the time, attention, and resources used to support the adoption, implementation, and sustainability of prevention efforts. Key to preparing prevention for investment is understanding what is needed to successfully achieve each of these, assessing the benefits of the program using a metric that is broadly meaningful, and determining the likely returns on an investment. PEPR offers support with evaluating prevention's economic and fiscal benefits, building the business case for using prevention in performance-based financing, and assistance in determining promising public financing possibilities for prevention models.
