About FUSE Corps

FUSE Corps is a national nonprofit that partners with local government to more effectively address the most pressing challenges facing urban communities. Our approach is based on an executive fellowship program that provides local government with the experienced leadership needed to accelerate institutional change and reduce racial disparities in their communities. We work with cities and counties to address their priorities in areas such as jobs, housing, healthcare, education, and justice reform. FUSE has managed over 200 projects across 35 cities in 15 states, impacting the lives of more than 25 million people.

FUSE is in the process of significantly increasing our work across the country in order to advance a more equitable recovery from the current pandemic and its economic fallout. Several philanthropic institutions have ramped up their support to drive this expansion to new cities throughout the South and Midwest. We have also launched a major new partnership with a globally-recognized celebrity who is committed to advocating for policy change and public awareness around the most powerful solutions emerging from US cities. These partnerships will amplify FUSE’s ability to influence and inspire the approaches that civic leaders across the country are employing in response to both long-established inequities and rapidly emerging challenges.
