Mark Evans

Funding Specialist

Infrastructure project finance is as much about timing as it is about available funding. Knowing about opportunities in advance of their application periods and deadlines can be a key to successful project delivery. This article summarizes some upcoming Federal and State funding application deadlines in states with Freese and Nichols offices. It is not intended to be a comprehensive list of all funding opportunities that exist but may serve as a guide for a selection of resources.

For questions on how your organization can benefit from these or other capital project or infrastructure funds available, please contact Mark Evans, Funding Specialist, at mark.evans@freese.com or your Freese and Nichols project manager. Our team can help your public entity identify funding sources for capital improvement initiatives, select the right opportunity, navigate the application process, and ultimately obtain the funding your projects need.
