Grants and Funding

We have secured over $75 million for the region; $35 million since 2010. In addition, we are proficient in TIF, Enterprise Zone and Special Service Districts, and Cook County Property Tax Incentives (Classes 6B, 7A, 7B, & 8). We research grants regularly to evaluate potential opportunities for our clients and their vision for their communities.

The application process is often detailed and involved, which we have successfully completed many times with our clients. It often requires project scope, budget, location, and incidentals such as resolutions, letters of support, signatures, DUNS, and federal employer identification numbers, and other municipal and project specific details.
