Steady, whose fintech platform helps more than 6 million workers nationwide to track and boost their income, today announced the launch of Steady Impact. As the social impact arm of the popular app, Steady Impact is already the leading administrator and data provider for cash assistance programs across the country, having distributed $115 million to more than 700,000 individuals through partnerships with city governments and community-based organizations.
"When we set out to launch our cash assistance program for San Diegans impacted by the pandemic, we knew that success would depend on a partner who not only had the technological capacity to deliver support to families in need, but also shared our mission of uplifting the community," said Khea Pollard, Director of Economic Mobility and Opportunity for Jewish Family Service of San Diego. "It's been clear from the beginning that Steady Impact believes deeply in that mission. Their unparalleled understanding of what it takes to build, maintain, and measure an effective cash assistance initiative is helping thousands of families across the region recover stronger."
Steady Impact has helped to develop and administer cash assistance programs in cities from Atlanta to Santa Fe to Baltimore, as well as innovative initiatives launched by community organizations and nonprofits like the Black Music Action Coalition's OnRamp. The company's technology is also used to help program leaders measure the impact of cash assistance on recipients' financial health, and Steady Impact works in partnership with the country's foremost coalitions and research organizations focused on the topic, including Mayors for a Guaranteed Income and the University of Pennsylvania's Center for Guaranteed Income Research.
"A growing body of research suggests that cash assistance can be one of the most effective drivers of financial stability and economic mobility," said Adam Roseman, Co-Founder and President of Steady. "The launch of Steady Impact is not just recognition of work we've been doing for a long time. It's also a renewal of our commitment to leveraging technology to scale what works in the fight against endemic wealth and opportunity gaps."
Co-founded by Shaquille O'Neal, Steady launched in 2017 with the goal of harnessing the potential of emerging technology to alleviate poverty. The company now works with several state governments to streamline the administration of unemployment insurance, SNAP, Medicaid, and other safety net benefits for non-standard workers, who now make up an estimated one-third of the U.S. labor force.
"Steady's mission of making more people financially healthy is incredibly personal to me," said Shaquille O'Neal. "This is the next step in the company's efforts to make sure that everyone has the financial resources to support themselves and their families."
At Steady ,we make data work for the non-standard workforce (1099, gig, and contingent workers). We partner with governments and financial institutions to help their systems work better for the workers we serve. Our flagship 1099 verification of income solution, Income Passport, is promoting access, equity and program integrity across the US. By extracting insights from data on more than 1.5 billion enriched financial transactions and over 151 billion enriched deposits, we help streamline benefits administration, quantify earnings, expand access to credit, reduce fraud, and improve outcomes.

Euna Solutions, a leading provider of purpose-built, cloud-based solutions for the public sector, today announced a new technology partnership with Pavilion, the leading search platform across the largest network of cooperative contracts for the public sector. Under the partnership, Euna Procure, powered by Bonfire, will be integrated with the Pavilion platform, delivering a seamless experience to find, use, and share cooperative contracts and fast-track the procurement process.
Euna Procure is a complete set of eProcurement solutions for the public sector. It features the largest and fastest growing supplier network consisting of more than 700,000 suppliers. By integrating with the Pavilion platform, public sector procurement teams will now have access to more than 100,000 shareable contracts from over 400+ national and regional purchasing cooperatives, states, and local public entities. Access to this robust database will make the process of finding cooperative and piggybackable contracts substantially more efficient by allowing users to quickly identify existing contracts they can use to purchase compliantly without a new solicitation process.
Other benefits of the Euna/Pavilion integration include: • Time and money savings: Within Euna Procure, users can seamlessly access shareable contracts. Piggybacking on a competitively solicited contract from a peer public entity reduces the administrative costs of running a new solicitation, which for some public entities can be more than $80,000. Shareable contracts can also provide access to more competitive pricing. • Internal and external collaboration: The integration allows agencies to more easily share contracts with other members within their agency, as well as with other agencies around the country. This provides procurement professionals greater access to public contracts, improving both internal and external collaboration. • Integrated workflows: Once procurement managers have identified the right contracts in the database, they will be able to easily reference them and invite suppliers to participate in new solicitations.
“We are very excited about our integration with Pavilion as it will empower our customers to leverage their peers’ experience by accessing the nation’s largest network of shareable contracts,” said James Ha, Chief Growth Officer at Euna Solutions. “Partnerships like this help our customers promote responsible sourcing and efficient outcomes that improve communities.”
“As public entities look to do more with less, we’re developing new ways to support procurement professionals in doing their most critical work,” said Mariel Reed, co-founder and CEO at Pavilion. “This partnership creates a more seamless experience for Euna Procure users to find, use and share contracts with other public entities so they can deliver better, faster services and drive greater impact for their communities.”
