Jumpstarting Growth

Many industries, non-profits, and state or local governments are faced with budget shortfalls and tough fiscal decisions.

Cassidy & Associates can help you look to Washington as a way to jumpstart economic growth, create jobs and revitalize communities.

Many members of our team have held pivotal positions in the federal government and Congress. We draw on that in-depth knowledge to help secure federal resources to support client initiatives in surface transportation, port improvements, campus improvements, water and wastewater infrastructure, commercial development and local community development.

Transformative Policy Strategies

The Cassidy & Associates team is adept at translating complex development, infrastructure and transportation issues into compelling public policy arguments.

Federal lawmakers are mindful of economically challenged neighborhoods, towns, cities and counties in their state or district, and the opportunity to direct funding to such communities through the annual congressional appropriations process.

Through the Departments of Housing and Urban Development, Transportation, Commerce and others, federal dollars go to municipal entities for investment in a wide array of economic development initiatives.
