Case Studies

Cumberland County, ME

TFG worked with Cumberland County, Maine to secure a $438,000 Grant to Encourage Arrest Policies and fund an Enforcement of Protection Orders Program after unsuccessfully attempting to secure renewed funds. The award will enhance the County’s Violence Intervention Partnership (VIP) project, and enrich partnerships between criminal justice agencies, victim services providers, and community organizations that respond to sexual assault, domestic violence, dating violence, and stalking. The grant award will allow VIP partners to provide outreach services to rural victims in Cumberland County, and to help those in immigrant and refugee communities.

College Park, GA

The Department of Commerce's Economic Development Administration awarded College Park $332,500 to install several quiet crossings in the downtown core area of the City. The project will dramatically improve pedestrian safety and create a more suitable ambient aural climate for the City’s small business owners. The Quiet Zone will improve the at-grade crossings that bisect the City in this area. The dual benefit of quieter streets and safer pedestrian and vehicular crossings will improve the quality of life for the entire City. TFG found the opportunity, created the agency contact, and provided technical review and support for the application.

Butte County Association of Governments, CA

TFG helped the Butte County Association of Governments (BCAG) secure one of the largest grants awarded in the Federal Transit Administration’s State of Good Repair grant program. The $18 million award will be used to construct the Butte Regional Transit Operations and Maintenance Facility which will allow BCAG to expand transit operations in Butte County, CA. TFG assisted BCAG throughout the entire grant application process including advance preparation for the project, generation of political support, drafting of the grant application, and final review. The award represented the 7th largest grant in the nation and the highest award for a rural community.
