Stimulus Bill Funding
The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act will send almost $1Trillion dollars to state and local governments in the very near future. This will result in thousands of lucrative contracting opportunities throughout the nation. However, the funding is difficult to follow and the rules and procedures are complicated. As a result, Strategic Partnerships, (SPI) is offering customized and ongoing research to firms interested in identifying and capturing upcoming opportunities.
Strategic Partnerships, the nation’s premier state and local government research firm, has teamed with MultiState Associates to offer opportunity identification, strategy and advocacy services related to the stimulus funding opportunities throughout the country.
