Funding Strategies and Grant Writing

One of the key strengths Vandewalle & Associates brings to its projects is a wide range of experience crafting innovative funding strategies, including the preparation of complex grant applications that bring state, federal and private funds to projects.racine funding strategy graphic

Our track record in preparing successful applications is second to none, particularly with the complex, multi-agency grant programs that are increasingly becoming the norm for most projects and can require a significant amount of matching funds.

As a firm Vandewalle & Associates constantly tracks a wide range of governmental and private that could support our clients’ goals. We also regularly work with clients to develop contacts and partnerships with elected officials governmental agencies and non-profits, to create strategies to rally political support and attract funding to advance projects, and with grant administration.  This includes participating with clients in trips and meetings with granting organizations to present ideas, and arming our clients with clear and concise communication materials geared toward a wide range of funding entities. In addition, we help clients use a variety of local funding sources – such as tax increment financing, business improvement districts, and capital improvement funds – to leverage available grants to stretch these limited resources for maximum impact.
