Transportation Funding and Financial Advisory Services

Comprehensive Funding & Financial Advisory Services to Guide Decision Making

Our infrastructure funding and financial advisory practice offers comprehensive multidisciplinary services to evaluate and implement new funding and financing solutions tailored to your needs. Working with our infrastructure experts across the company, we help owners and agencies make informed decisions to advance their capital programs, meet service expectations, and invest in new technologies for critical projects. More than securing temporary infusions of funding, we're interested in improving the fiscal health of organizations for the long term.

We've worked extensively with clients across the United States to access funding authorized through the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act and the Inflation Reduction Act. We help clients across North America understand the funding available and find the grant programs right for them.

Leading Tools to Prioritize Projects for Funding

To help with grant project screening and prioritization, our teams use a multistep process called REM — Readiness, Eligibility and Merit — to identify projects within an agency’s capital plan that will be most competitive for each grant program. Our infrastructure funding experts are able to assist in every stage of the process, from program evaluation and strategic positioning to grant application development to post-award monitoring of technical requirements.
