Our National Partnership Fund Development Retreats called "Walk in Our Moccasins; Seven Strategies to Win More Grants" are unlike any other service in the nation, combining talents of visionaries, graphical recorders, grant writers, and leadership coaches. Our team of consultants provide a variety of consulting services for our clients such as strategic planning, sustainability planning, program evaluation, capacity building, grant writing, grants management, facilitation, program design, business, and leadership development.
We specialize in winning technology grants for tribes, government and schools. We have won over $17M in broadband grants in the last 2 years for the Ute Mountain Ute Tribe to provide middle mile, fiber to the premise and internet for government offices. The grants came from state and federal agencies, as well as private foundations such as the Colorado Health Foundation. We have worked with businesses such as Cisco, Westcon, NeoConnect and more that sell and engineer technology to help them help their clients.
Our grant writers have unique experience in rural grants, disaster recovery, healthcare grants, and more. We also help clients develop long term plans and strategies for funding major infrastructure projects such as water, housing, transportation, charter schools, commercial energy, food sovereignty and economic development.
Our services include developing Comprehensive Economic Development Strategies (CEDS) Plans as well as COVID Recovery and Resiliency Plans. Samples of our award winning publications can be provided upon request.
“USGG helped the Ute Mountain Ute Tribe win more than $100M in new grants between 2014 and 2021. Beverly Santicola is trustworthy, innovative, and excels at building relationships with new funding partners. Recently we needed to find $1M in nonfederal match for a $4.6M federal broadband grant. Within two days Beverly identified the funding partner to provide the match. Her team of grant writers are the top producers in the United States, generating a combined total of $1 Billion in grants for their clients in the past twenty years. What USGG does differently than their competition is design award winning projects that stand out above all the rest to get funded.”
