Funding and Grant Proposal Preparation
Transportation programming is where planning meets implementation. Project review and selection for programming involves reviewing proposed project scopes, schedules, and costs to determine the likelihood of successful project delivery and consistency with the various funding requirements related to individual sources of transportation funding. Longer-term planning is focused into a shorter-term strategic plan to identify projects that provide a benefit to the transportation system in our client’s communities. The shorter-term plan involves identifying potential funding opportunities for the near-term projects and programs.
AMG team members have provided programming assistance to various transportation authorities and CMA’s in the Bay Area region. The team’s familiarity with the multiple agencies involved in programming allows us to identify funding strategies that increase the likelihood of securing leveraged funds. Our knowledge of current regional, state, and federal funding policies and procedures and forward-looking mindset provide flexibility and responsiveness to changing requirements. Constrained local and state budgets, combined with limited resources are making state and federal funding programs increasingly more competitive and highlight the need for creative financing techniques.
Our team of capital programming professionals, transportation planners, and grant writers work efficiently to identify and pursue discretionary grant programs, as well as alternative financing mechanisms. Our services include research and analysis, writing and graphic design, management and cash flow projection, and reporting and compliance.
