Organizational Assessment & Technical Assistance

CEED provides consulting and technical assistance (TA) for organizations interested in connecting their work to broader goals of environmental sustainability and social equity. We help to facilitate connections between local and national organizations and community leaders; advise and consult on equity issues within the energy and environmental field; and conduct research and policy analysis for organizations and foundations interested in promoting programming in equitable sustainability.

The CEED TA model bridges technical expertise with community capacity. We bring experience and expertise in research and evaluation; energy and environmental policy; and racial and economic equity. Our unique capacities provide organizations with resources needed to develop programming that addresses environmental sustainability to achieve long-term just solutions.

CEED’s capacity building and technical assistance program helps groups and organizations to become more effective agents of change. We provide trainings, one-on-one technical assistance, community planning and leadership building, and policy analysis. As part of CEED’s mission, the goal of these services is to create equitable and sustainable communities.

Some of CEED’s recent clients include the Institute for Agriculture and Trade Policy (Minneapolis), the Kellogg Foundation’s Food & Community Fellows Program, RE-AMP (a network of 144 nonprofits and foundations across eight Midwestern states working on climate change and energy policy), and the Little Village Environmental Justice Organization (Chicago).
