Grantwise is a private consortium of professionals who are experts in the use and administration of public funding programs. We offer consultation and support for organizations that may be considering making a grant application, those who are in the application process or may be at the implementation stage of a grant. The professionals at Grantwise, currently facilitated by Capital Construction Management. can help to review the conceptual ideas a potential applicant has for a project to determine if it makes sense to even ask for the grant. A review of the pros, cons and considerations of the project may determine that public funding is not a good resource or perhaps that a revised scope makes it better suited for a grant. Ensuring a project is of a certain size or scope is the first step to a successful project.
When considering or pursuing public funds for a project, it’s critical to ensure that funds are leveraged to gain the maximum benefit for a project and that these reimbursement funds get to the project owner in a timely fashion. We are an advocate for the project owner in this process. There are limited resources at the PA Office of the Budget to assist with the application and compliance process since their role is to ensure the Commonwealth’s investment is sound. It’s not their job to advocate for the project stakeholders but we can!
