Grant & Loan Funding

For most local governments, water and/or wastewater systems are a significant portion of their assets and annual budget. Capital improvements to these systems are thus equally significant and often require creative financing.

West Consultants helps local governments identify and apply for grant funds and low-interest loan funds including state and federal programs. The consultants at West are experienced and can work closely with the local council of governments to help determine the appropriate grants and loans for capital improvement projects. West Consultants will also assist with the often complex application procedure.

Once a capital improvement project is funded, it is critical to stay in compliance with the funding agency’s conditions. West Consultants can manage the entire process and monitor the capital project as it is under construction to be sure all requirements are met and that deadlines do not slip by.

West Consultants has assisted many local governments with funding including grants and/or low-interest loans from state and federal resources including:
