At Capstone, we work in collaboration with our clients to form a strong partnership that will allow us to achieve success together. Transportation in California continues to change rapidly with a move to zero-emission fleets and the infrastructure that goes with it.  We will lead your agency into the next era through creative thinking, strategic action, and relationship-building.  Through a vision, plan, and strategy, we can help you successfully further your goals and objectives.

 

Funding Identification

As your strategic partner. Capstone will work with your team to ensure you are maximizing your Federal, State, and regional funding sources. We review your existing allocations and will research new potential funding sources. Our services can include working with elected officials to create state and federal budget allocations for your projects, grant writing assistance, and paving the way for personal input to state and Federal DOT budget officials.

 

Federal Legislative Affairs

Capstone values the importance of building strong working relationships with the key members of Congress from your service territory. We can set up recurring meetings that will help you get to know the elected official’s staff in both their local and Washington DC offices.  Additionally, Capstone will ensure your agency has strong relationships with US Dot officials who manage DOT Region 9.  We will also help you develop connections with staff at the USDOT headquarters to ensure your agency maximizes its potential funding and technical support.
