Grant Writing & Funding Development


LACO offers assistance with obtaining and administering grants and low interest loans. With the State of California continually seeking to fund rural and disadvantaged communities and consider environmental justice when making funding decisions, it is more important than ever to understand how grant funding can amplify a project’s impact and bolster an organization’s resources.

In recent years, LACO has won millions of dollars for our tribal, municipal, and special district clients through grant programs including the Clean Water and Drinking Water State Revolving Funds, Community Development Block Grant Program, FEMA Hazard Mitigation Grant Program, and programs made possible by statewide bonds including Proposition 1 and Proposition 68. LACO’s technical writers are experienced in obtaining grants and loans for various project types including drinking water, wastewater, water quality, water supply, water conservation, solid waste, energy efficiency, flood management, emergency preparedness, disaster recovery, wildfire mitigation, and transportation and community facilities.

As an integrated engineering, geotechnical, and planning firm, we have the technical knowledge to assist with design, cost estimating, technical reports, drawings, and permitting. This depth of knowledge allows us to create compelling grant applications that tell a story and clearly outline how the requested funds will be used to achieve both the applicant’s and the funding organization’s goals and objectives.
