When you have the opportunity to take on an economic development project, inSITE is the partner you should turn to. Our team of experts is here to create opportunities for your community and deliver multiplying benefits through your customized development program. When you choose InSITE as your economic development partner, here’s what you can expect during the process:
Securing funding for your community development project is one of the most significant hurdles you will face during this process. State funding decisions may have negative local implications, and it is up to you to fill the gap.
We know how to access the funding you need to make your project a reality through state government, grants, and advocacy. inSITE will take the lead in negotiations with government officials and agencies as well as the grant application process to ensure you receive maximum funding for your project.
You’ll need to identify the problem your community is facing and develop a solution all while running the existing services your city needs. However, many local governments do not have the specialized skills to implement community development nor the budget to hire full time staff.
At inSITE, we use our experience and local connections in community development to draft your unique program, identify the right solution and the corridor to it, make the necessary connections, work with agency partners, and lead the grant process the create a competitive application to the state.
You’ll need to negotiate with state and federal officials in order to receive the funding you need, but these negotiations take a specific approach as well as knowledge of how the grant and advocacy process works.
We will use our expertise to advocate for your local government with state and federal officials when you don’t know how. This takes not only a strong inside knowledge of how governments work and the current political environment but also a keen understanding of when to push (and not push) in negotiations to maximize the value of the opportunity for your community.
When there are other pressing concerns in the community, you don’t have time to manage your economic development. However, because building community and a flourishing local economy that welcomes businesses is still an important part of running a city, we do that work for you.
We are experts in government that need no training.
We provide fresh ideas and awareness of what other communities are doing.
We provide capacity, efficiency, and specialized skills with objectivity and political neutrality.
We create mechanisms for business attraction.
