Commonwealth Consulting Partners is an unprecedented partnership that combines decades of experience advocating for clients at the federal, state, and local levels, focusing on Statewide, Allegheny, Washington, and Westmoreland County issues.
CCP provides services designed to help our clients navigate and take advantage of opportunities in the business and political world. We are fully committed to serving our clients with the highest performance and quality standards. Our experience and relationships give our clients an advantage in three primary verticals.
We engage with clients through these verticals to identify and solve strategic and operational issues. Importantly, our tailored solutions help clients accomplish their goals and objectives, improve internal and external policies, and operate more efficiently and effectively in realizing their governing mission.
CCP approaches grant consulting as a highly technical, creative, strategic, and nuanced process. CCP professionals guide clients through the complex environment of federal, state, and local grant opportunities while simultaneously advising on internal structures, strategies, and overall capacity required to succeed. Our services extend beyond simply assisting with writing a successful application. We start working well in advance of a formal application and advise our clients on necessary organizational management structures, finances, programmatic and operational reforms, and administrative processes they need to establish to engage successfully with grant funding.
Competitive and discretionary grants increasingly provide organizations with profound opportunities to accomplish their long-term strategic visions and high-level organizational goals. Especially at the federal and state level, these sources of funding can help facilitate significant improvements to our clients' operational abilities and objectives.
Many organizations are forced to rely on staff with other essential responsibilities to manage the grant management process. By engaging with CCP, we help alleviate these challenges by offering diverse resources and services to help reduce workload and stress. We support clients' leadership and staff align their goals, objectives, and strategic vision with grant opportunities.
Once awarded, CCP will continue its active engagement to advise clients on successfully and efficiently delivering the expected results for grant-funded projects that align with extensive and rigid federal, state, and local regulations and rules.
