David VanLuven worked with Congress to deliver a $450,000 appropriation for mapping the shallow waters of the Hudson River Estuary.  Understanding the riverbed is critical for protecting historic shipwrecks (like the one above), restoring important fisheries, and protecting communities from sea level rise.

Fund Raising

We have extensive experience preparing grant proposals for foundation, state, and federal grant programs.  These successful efforts have all involved assessing the grantor’s interests, aligning desired projects with them, and writing clear and compelling proposals.

For example, David VanLuven has delivered:

  • $450K from Congress for mapping the Hudson riverbed between New York Harbor and Troy, NY
  • $1M from the State of NY for biodiversity inventories of all State Forests
  • $500K from DOT for rare species and significant ecosystem guides
