Real Estate Consulting
Real estate consulting services include development feasibility, entitlements, due diligence, land acquisition, deal structuring and financing, and deal negotiations. Civic Communities’ staff is well versed in the full spectrum of real estate and can leverage their years of experience to assist non-profit organizations, community organizations, or businesses looking to develop or finance a real estate project.
New Markets Tax Credit (NMTC) Consulting
Since 2012, Civic Communities’ staff has gained significant experience with New Markets Tax Credits (NMTC), having deployed $163 million in NMTC allocations into 14 transactions. While the NMTC program is a significant source of revenue, it is dependent upon winning a NMTC allocation each year, which is not guaranteed. In years when Civic Communities does not receive an allocation, there remains a significant pipeline of projects which need funding and an allocation of NMTC. We can provide consulting services to the existing pipeline of projects in order to help structure and identify allocation for pipeline projects. Staff has developed a good network of investors, lenders and partners which can be leveraged in this endeavor. While the revenue from the consulting work may be less than providing the allocation ourselves, it is a more reliable and steadier stream of revenue which can be relied upon to support ongoing operations.
Human Resources (HR)/Accounting/Information Technology (IT) and Administrative Services
Civic Communities employs experienced staff with multi-disciplinary backgrounds and a wide range of skills in employment/labor compliance, best operational practices, workplace investigation, systems administration, desktop troubleshooting and accounting support. Staff can assist small businesses, non-profit organizations and construction-related firms and contractors in providing full-scope HR auditing services, HR consulting services including workplace investigation services and EEO/prevailing wage monitoring, and HR training services. IT services could include systems and software evaluations and desktop support solutions.
