Funding, Writing, Administration, Processing & Consulting Support
you have considered all of the sources of capital and none are attainable, then
a grant might make sense. The American Recovery & Reinvestment Act of
2009 (a/k/a, the "Stimulus Bill") provided broad categories of funding
applicable to business and these programs have been continued into 2010, 2011
and now 2012. Could your business use a grant? Have you been
searching for capital and having found no investors to support your project you
are now getting desperate and want to consider all of your options?

being sought. To qualify your project for consideration, the following
threshold issues have to be satisfied (click here for a copy of
our pre-construction phase due diligence documentation checklist):
control. Site under contract or owned.
Entitlements. The site has to be entitled for the intended use - there
are no exceptions.
Entity Legal/Organizational. The sponsor entity must be formed, EIN
received and certificate of standing in place.
Team. The key slots in the project delivery team have to be filled
with contracts and/or memorandums of understanding executed and
Round Capitalization. An initial round of capital funding has to be
closed that provides the funds necessary to defray the costs of processing
the grant, the carrying costs associated with the project over the
processing period and the completion of any other due diligence
documentation requirements that might become known as a result of the grant

Goes Into An Underwriting?
The Rainmaker approach is truly
a comprehensive assessment with 66 exhibits collected on every project
that cover every aspect of the development, construction, operations and
regulatory matters. Collateral, credit and capacity underwriting reviews
are conducted using CREFC underwriting standards in addition to a
complete default risk analysis on term, maturity and technical default
risk profiles. Our typical underwriting report on a new
construction project will easily exceed 500 pages and catalogue all
transaction documents, plans and specifications.
