Kristen H. Long

Grants Project Manager

“Helping communities unlock and access much needed funding is my passion. It’s amazing to see what one grant can do for a community in need. Getting to be part of that process and witness the programs that can develop is so exciting, and why I do what I do.”

Kristen Long is a Grants Project Manager at TFG where she partners with communities and non-profit entities to identify and secure grant funding for public projects that protect natural resources, provide needed infrastructure, support public safety, implement sustainable communities, and improve and revitalize environmentally compromised properties.

In addition to extensive experience in grant proposal research, writing, development, and submission, Kristen has a strong technical background with more than two decades of experience in environmental research, regulation, site investigations, and human health and ecological risk assessments. Prior to joining TFG, Kristen worked at a multi-disciplinary engineering firm where she focused efforts on brownfield grant writing and management.  Here, she secured grant funding on an annual basis for multiple communities across the southeast and then worked with these communities to assess, clean up, and revitalize underutilized and/or contaminated industrial and commercial properties. She also led public involvement efforts, as community support is vital to the brownfield process. In addition, Kristen also served in multiple roles as a state regulator where she led environmental assessments, performed risk assessments, and wrote voluntary cleanup contracts as part of the state’s brownfields program. Most recently, Kristen was with a DC-based environmental and historical research firm where she served as an environmental specialist.

Kristen received her B.A. in geology with a minor in politics and environmental studies from Whitman College in Walla Walla, Washington, and a Master of Earth and Environmental Resource Management Degree, with a focus on communicating environmental risk, from the University of South Carolina in Columbia, South Carolina.
