We help towns focus on the project, not the administration, so that the real work can get done. Towns often have limited staff capacity to manage the administrative burden of state and federal grants, but the RRPC provides support to encourage Towns to seek grant funding for transformative projects.
Utilizing grant funds is easy when the RRPC manages your project.
The RRPC can serve as a Municipal Project Manager (MPM) for state funded (typically from Vermont Agency of Transportation) grants without the hassle of a complicated procurement process. The MPM is hired (with grant dollars) to work with, and support, the municipalities to navigate the state and federal Project Development Process for construction or scoping projects.
The RRPC procures consultants or contractors, coordinates with state agencies and local partners, facilitates meetings, and completes grant administration reporting and reimbursements.
Management grant funded projects is hard, but contracting with the RRPC doesn't have to be!
Just follow these five simple steps:
RPC is your town’s low-cost, high-value resource to help the local planning commission get the job done.
Paperwork, spreadsheets, and online portals suck up valuable hours for town employees and volunteers. RRPC will help towns identify funding sources, write grants, and manage the grant’s execution and reporting.
Linked below are a handful of the popular grants that we help towns apply for and manage.
