FUSE is a national nonprofit that partners with local government to help urban communities thrive. We work with cities on a range of issues, including economic and workforce development, healthcare, public safety, climate change, and education.

Our approach centers around an executive fellowship program. We co-design ambitious yet achievable year-long projects with government partners, recruit experienced leaders to take on those challenges, and provide the support and learning opportunities to meet the community’s needs.

By helping to craft new policy, roll out new public services, and improve existing programs, we allow governments to work better for the people they serve.


Our Projects

We strive to help build communities where people from all walks of life can afford to live in safe neighborhoods with strong economies, high employment rates and living wages, and have access to healthcare and educational opportunities. Learn more about our projects.


Our Stories

Our biggest opportunity to effect widespread systemic change is by sharing stories of innovative best practices. We hope they will inspire leaders who are reinventing government to imagine the possibilities for themselves. Read more about what we’re learning.
