Communities and developers need funding to facilitate complex community development programs and disaster recovery efforts. But finding sources of funding is just the first step in what is often a complex and time-consuming process. To see projects through and ultimately create a positive impact on communities, developers and governments must carefully manage funds while maintaining compliance with the maze of rules and regulations attached to grant funding programs.
For decades, developers and city, county, and state governments have turned to CSRS to simplify and streamline the federal grant management process and assist with resilient capital planning. CSRS has managed over $5 billion in federal grant funds for communities recovering from the historic devastation.

However, we are more than just funding experts. Our background in engineering, architecture, and planning means we understand what you want to accomplish with your funding.
