PBP does a great job compared to many organizations in advancing equity in our work AND in how we run things internally day to day. But we can always do better! Funds could be used to hire external consultants for training, coaching and/or evaluation to support PBP in further diversifying our staff and board representation, and improving policies that advance recruiting, retaining, and advancing a diverse team.
A key output for our broader constituency could be a blog post or short case study on what we learned, resournces we used (e.g., publicly available guides or blogs we found helpful), how we've changed. This can can be useful for organizations and agencies that are tackling broader equity efforts while launching and growing PB.

A training portal or series -online, in person and/or via Skype, to train folks across the country to be able to start and lead PB discussions in their communities. This could include a series of trainings and webinars, and printed collateral for the new trainers to give to interested PB folks.

Develop a toolkit that organizations can use to implement PB for their own budgets. Helping organizations run their own PB processes will empower their staff and community, and build capacity and awareness for PB. This project will enable other organizations to adapt the PB2 model that PBP has already developed.

People are working hard to bring PB to funders, communities and institutions. It makes it easier to have the same messaging and legitimacy when we have some cool and uniform swag. It also allows our amplifiers to get excited about working with us while doing the work. We need to outfit our movement.

Review what equity is and make sure that thier PB process is mapped to equity indicators. There are really great indicators that come out of Seattle.
Here is the city of oakland's equity indicator report: https://cao-94612.s3.amazonaws.com/documents/2018-Equity-Indicators-Full-Report.pdf
here is a powerpoint presentation from the city of Seattle: https://www.seattle.gov/Documents/Departments/SeattlePlanningCommission/MinutesAndAgendas/CompPlanEquityIDPsandIndicatorsOPCDPresentation02252016.pdf
There is a really great one pager that the City of Oakland uses that I think could be a tool adapted for our use with instructions and measurement guidelines

Convince congress that all student college debt should be discharged allowing that money to flow into the economy, increasing demand and employment in housing, manufacturing, agriculture and retail. Without the burden of $500 to $5,000 monthly payments, these young Americans will spend those funds on housing, furniture, clothing, transportation, groceries and entertainment, stimulating the economy like nothing else.
