Federal and State Grant Administration

CRA of Florida, during the last 31 years, has developed a proven system to administer federal and state grants in a timely and cost-efficient manner. Federal and state grant programs play an essential role in community development in South Florida. We specialize in the federal Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) and Home Investment Partnership (HOME) programs as well as the Florida State Housing Initiative Partnership (SHIP) program. The company’s principals have been instrumental in shaping many of the regulations that guide these federal and state grant programs.
