Performance-Based Funding: The National Landscape - Relying on a formula utilizing performance indicators, performance-based funding (PBF) is gaining a national foothold. This brief offers a look at where each state is: 22 have PBF in place, 7 are in transition, 10 are in formal discussion, 12-including the District of Columbia-had little evidence of activity.

States considering implementation or modification should consider: stakeholder involvement, sector-specific measures, linking measures with state goals and gradual phase-in.
