IMMEDIATE SUPPORT FOR SUCCESSFUL COMMUNITY INITIATIVES
Our experience enables our team to provide immediate support to communities, taking proven program models and adapting them to fit specific needs and objectives. We collect, integrate, and analyze data, generating insights to inform decision-making related to a broad spectrum of community development needs. Through this data-informed approach, our clients maximize the impacts of their investments.
Our team knows how to design innovative programs – all with a clear focus on achieving long-term community development objectives. We have led and supported initiatives that blend multiple funding sources (public and private) and know how to craft the most effective partnerships, avoiding unnecessary complexity, regulatory burden, and duplication of efforts.
We use a thoughtful range of sources, such as retail gap analysis, real estate performance, market demand analysis, U.S. Census data, FEMA flood claims, Preference Typologies, and Place-Based Market Valuation to provide comprehensive descriptions of community conditions and to develop the tools needed to make accurate development and investment decisions.
Our established methodology turns volumes of data into visual information. We build a foundation by identifying and gathering key data sets; engage information through examination and visualization; provide informed, innovative, and actionable insights; and equip our clients to make critical policy and planning decisions.
