MSA provides multifaceted funding services to help you turn the vision for your community into a reality.
We turn every stone to find both public and private sources to help you fund your project. We know the ins and outs of the programs, so we can help you bundle funding sources, manage timelines, and take care of the details to satisfy the fund requirements. With MSA’s support, you can complete the projects you must, and deliver more of the projects you want, all while getting closer to the balanced, sustainable community you’ve always envisioned.
Balancing needs and budget.
Water, sewer, transportation, parks and recreation and other types of community improvement projects are expensive. Yet, these projects are necessary, either to meet the requirements of a regulatory agency or to provide the quality of life your residents want and deserve. Finding ways to improve your community’s infrastructure without putting an undue financial burden on your constituents can be a precarious balancing act, especially when public sources of funding are scarce. Your community is counting on you to deliver the greatest value for the dollars you have.
Some initiatives are best led or done in partnership with civic organizations, friends groups, or as alliances and we can help you form those connections, assist the eligible entities, develop a vision and plan, help form equitable budget strategies and facilitate the projects.
Get creative in your funding strategy.
MSA helps your community explore funding options that go beyond traditional public sources. Our dedicated funding specialists bring to the table a broad knowledge base of public funding sources, and are resourceful when it comes to identifying private, non-profit and other sources of funding. Funds such as tax incremental financing (TIF), business districts, and local, state and federal grants and loans can be bundled with community resources for the must-do projects as well as parks, recreational facilities, libraries and other projects that improve the fabric of your community.
Our team partners with you from the start, championing your project vision, advising on what types of projects can be funded and helping with feasibility studies to analyze your project’s potential. Then, we can help you strategize the funding of your project by applying our knowledge of a variety of funding sources with our experience in bundling them together to help keep costs low. As an MSRB-Registered Municipal Advisory Firm, we provide expert guidance to help you determine the best financing options for your project, and its success.
As licensed fundraisers, we can even help raise and handle funds on your behalf, making us an invaluable resource in moving your project forward. From consulting on fundraising campaigns, to creating the case for support, to qualifying donors and even launching non-profits, our skills and capabilities go well beyond what you’d find from most engineering partners.
