How Can We Help You?

We provide consulting assistance to organizations that want to secure government incentives, grants, and traditional and non-traditional financing to develop residential and commercial properties.

Development Consulting

The Ethos team will help clients conceptualize and implement the steps needed to be successful whether developing affordable housing, commercial projects or implementing high-impact community development initiatives. This includes working with the client, development team, community and government entities, and other stakeholders to ensure potential projects are feasible and can secure the necessary financing.

Project Financing

The Ethos team will leverage established relationships with government and private financing entities to determine all the options for successfully funding projects. These financing options include:

• Predevelopment funding
• Low Income Housing Tax Credits
• New Market Tax Credits
• Historic Tax Credits
• Federal HOME Funds
• Community Development Block Grants
• Historic Tax Credits
• Environmental Grants and Incentives
• Foundation and Corporate Philanthropy

The Ethos team will work with clients to prepare applications and meet due diligence requirements for these programs. Our team will also work to identify and negotiate additional sources of funding, such as construction financing. As these sources are identified and secured, Ethos will work to get them closed quickly so projects can move forward.

Project Implementation

Ethos will work with clients to assemble a qualified development team and manage all aspects of the development process. Typically this team includes the following:

1. Development Consultant (Ethos)
2. Architect
3. General Contractor
4. Legal Counsel
5. Environmental Consultant
6. Accountant

As the work of developing a project does not end upon closing on financing, Ethos will work to ensure that all requirements are met for government and financing partners from construction through lease-up .
