Our past service has included (though is by no means limited to) work with the Surface Transportation Board, the Department of Transportation, the Federal Transit Administration, the Federal Aviation Administration, the Department of Justice, the Department of the Interior, the Environmental Protection Agency, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, the Department of Energy, the Department of Homeland Security and the Department of Defense.
Transportation is one of our specialties. Thanks to a comprehensive understanding of the legislative authorization and appropriations process, we have secured hundreds of millions of dollars for our clients. Some of our biggest successes include:
Flood Control/Water/Regulatory Advocacy
Flood control and water and regulatory advocacy is another area in which we excel. Our experience in working with the Army Corps of Engineers and the other relevant agencies gives us an advantage in the process of securing funds. Projects we have secured funding for include dam construction, flood control studies, erosion studies, storm drain systems, perchlorate bio-remediation projects, water and sewer treatment facilities, and the planning, design, and development of a groundwater storage system.
Department of Defense
At David Turch and Associates we pride ourselves on the amount of access we provide our clients. We have fostered long-term working relationships with the Executive Branch, Members of Congress on the Armed Services Committee and the Defense Appropriations Subcommittee and committee staff. Because of these relationships, our clients have received tens of millions of dollars in Defense Department grants. Examples include personal life rafts, facial recognition technology research, procurement, research and testing of reverse osmosis desalination equipment and expert guidance in navigating the BRAC process.
Justice / Homeland Security
David Turch and Associates provides access to the Department of Justice and Homeland Security. With unique ties to these federal agencies we succeed. Some of our more noteworthy successes include millions of dollars for criminal detention centers, technology updates for law enforcement agencies, grant money to place probation officers in our client's county schools for at-risk-youth, computer systems to track juveniles from the time of their entry into the juvenile justice system to eventual release from wardship, a grant for a drug court that stresses treatment over incarceration, and emergency communications programs.
Social Services Advocacy
David Turch and Associates advocates on behalf of the regulatory and legislative interests of our clients before the Executive Branch and Congress. When appropriate, we coordinate our efforts with organizations such as the National Association of Counties (NACO), the National League of Cities, the National Association of Head Start and the National Association of Housing and Redevelopment Officials. Because we represent many cities and counties throughout the country, we impact developments that affect the Community Development Block Grant Program, the Reauthorization of the Welfare Reform Act, and Section 8 Housing among other federal programs.
Economic Development / Recreation
Through our access to the Economic Development Administration and other agencies our firm has succeeded in securing millions of dollars in funding for senior centers, Boys and Girls Clubs, Teen Centers, zoos, baseball fields, gymnasiums and construction of much needed access roads. In short, our firm does what is necessary to achieve your goals and increase the standard of living in your area.
At David Turch and Associates we will bring our knowledge, proven experience and manpower to you. We have strong personal and professional relationships with the most powerful appropriations and transportation decision-makers in Washington, D.C. We can link this political force to that of your congressional delegation to form a cooperative effort, providing the best possible chance to achieve your goals.
David Turch and Associates has an excellent reputation for accomplishment on behalf of those we represent.
