Driving change through an equitable model for shared impact

PERC is a justice venture on a mission to transform public funding and investment practices toward equitable development. We center the collective power and expertise of Black, Indigenous and Latino/a/x communities in decision-making processes related to public investment, and build cross-sector collaborative partnerships nationwide. Our goal is to create a network of cities prepared to secure and implement public resources specifically focused on advancing economic development, housing, and civic infrastructure.

Rooted in strong partnerships

PERC has developed a unique, participatory model that facilitates learning, communication and partnership between government agencies, communities, businesses and philanthropy.

We partner with cities to strategically form and activate powerful cross-sector coalitions that center the voices and expertise of Black, Indigenous and Latino/a/x communities, deliver measurable and results-based outcomes, and ultimately, reimagine the decision-making process for investment, implementation and long-term impact of public funds.
