FUSE enables local governments to more effectively address their most pressing challenges. We do this by scoping fellowship projects and recruiting, training and placing private-sector leaders into yearlong assignments within local government agencies. Since 2011, FUSE has placed over 60 Fellows in 15 cities including Los Angeles, San Francisco, San José, Seattle and New Orleans.

FUSE selects Fellows through a national executive search for each project and receives over 1,000 applications each year. On average, Fellows enter the program with 15+ years of private-sector leadership experience.

Fellows apply their extensive experience to help cities develop innovative solutions to issue areas such as transportation and infrastructure, data and government reform and health and human services. To learn more about FUSE Fellows and projects, click on the links above.
