Federal & State Grant Writing

Our highly effective and efficient application process enjoys a 100 percent success rate with HDSRF grants.

This hands-on experience with the nuances of the HDSRF grant program often makes the difference between success and stalemate. With Excel’s network of NJDEP and NJEDA staff, we can do the same for you.

For over a decade,Excel hascreatively cobbled together grants, low or no-interest loans, and other financial incentive and assistance packages for our municipal, county and redevelopment authority clients, including:

  • NJ Economic Development Authority (NJEDA)
  • NJ Redevelopment Authority (NJRA)
  • NJ Department of Community Affairs (NJDCA) –including the Office of Smart Growth
  • Brownfield Redevelopment Interagency Team (BRIT)
  • Brownfield Task Force

These have collectively garneredover $15million in funds for investigation and remedial action of properties with known or suspected contamination, including grants from the HDSRF for performance of PA, SI, RI, and RA, and comprehensive BDA applications of all sizes.

We have also successfully obtained grants for municipal clients under the NJRA Brownfield Initiative, the Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) program, and various programs within the NJDCA and have successfully assisted our public sector clients with the environmental components of the Green Acres grant program.

We have hands-on experience with preparation of grant applications under the USEPA Brownfield Pilot Program and have worked with redevelopment authorities to develop effective Brownfield Inventories; implement effective strategies for ranking and investigation of candidate properties; and transition to the PA/SI to RI and remedial action design for redevelopment.
