We work with partners to secure local, state, federal, and private grants. Our team excels at identifying funding opportunities, gathering supplemental materials such as community letters of support, and designing impact measures and metrics.

Program Design & Evaluation
Our team works with organizations of all sizes to provide tools, customized resources, and technical assistance to improve evidence for parks and recreation-based programming. We provide location-specific assessments and recommendations for equitable and inclusive initiatives to serve your entire population. Our approach to parks and recreation solutions are underpinned by a commitment to conservation, diversity, and inclusion considerations. In order to address the most pressing issues facing our communities, we embrace a framework that includes both measuring and evaluating impact. Our evaluation process goes beyond the traditional outcome metrics. We provide insight outcomes that include key findings from research, the program, and experiences that can shape the direction of the program. We also believe in measuring capability metrics, those skills or capacities that develop in individuals and groups, including system or process enhancements.
Our team works with local community agencies and healthcare providers to develop and deliver customized technology solutions for data management, integration, and access. Whether it is developing a data repository for park and greenspace information or integrating tailored behavioral prescriptions into the electronic health record, our team can help identify a solution to bridge the gap between knowledge and access, helping to streamline your daily process and improve overall product delivery.
