SEED Certified Firms are distinguished by their capacity to understand and respond to the needs of clients and communities that often lie outside the traditional scope of the planning and design professions. SEED Certified Firm designation is granted when a firm demonstrates a track record of successful projects that exemplify the SEED Mission and Principles.

Certified SEED Consulting Firms advise clients through the SEED Evaluator process, adding layers of value to projects, from building community support in pre-design through systematic documentation of results in post-occupancy, as required by most funding sources. The annual fee to maintain certification as a SEED Consulting Firm is assessed on a sliding scale, relative to size of the firm.

SEED Consulting Firm designation brings value to participating firms, including:

association with a known professional standard for public interest design.
a nationally recognized third-party certification of the public value of their services.
a clear participatory process for community organizations, government entities, and funders.
a user-friendly methodology for planning and documenting process and outcomes.
reduced fees for SEED project certification (one per year).
no cost registration for two members to attend the annual Structures For Inclusion conference.
no cost registration for two members to attend one Public Interest Design Institute per year.
