Thoma's roots lie in grant writing and program implementation. Our expertise in grantsmanship is evidenced by the nearly $100 million in project funding that Thoma has secured for our customers. We have experience working with more than 30 different State, federal, and private funding sources. We also have the in-house capability to administer grants and implement programs. Grant preparation and management are integral components of the many services we provide our customers.

InfrastructureAt Thoma, we recognize that grant development is more than just grant writing. We help our customers define their needs, research relevant funding options, design programs to meet their specific requirements, and prepare the funding applications. While we are experienced in developing a wide array of grant proposals, we specialize in grant preparation in the areas of housing, economic development, infrastructure, and community facilities.

Community Facilities and ParksFor many communities, implementation can often be as challenging as securing funding. Thoma is also a leader in grant project implementation and management. We can manage specific aspects of your project, or assume all duties of grant administration. Thoma is well-versed in the implementation of numerous grant programs, with particular expertise in the administration of Community Development Block Grants, including housing rehabilitation, homeownership, infrastructure, public facilities, and economic development, as well as management of loan portfolios. Thoma has worked extensively with a software developer to create a customized software package specifically designed to manage grant administration, with particular emphasis in administering housing rehabilitation programs.

Economic DevelopmentWe have expertise in survey methodologies and techniques, environmental reviews, Fair Housing, homeownership counseling, current building codes, lead-based paint risk assessment, and fiscal management.
