Proposals, Etc. also has extensive municipal experience in government grants, including
the CDBG and HOME programs, municipal finance, economic development and downtown revitalization.


“Carla Cataldo, of Proposals, Etc. recently worked with us at the Claflin Hill Symphony.   Not only did she bring in several new charitable foundation gifts to us in the past year, but also a major Capacity Building grant which helped our organization initiate and complete a four-month long Capacity Building and Strategic Planning exercise.

Carla worked with our Board throughout the 2015 Winter months, expertly and smoothly guiding our Board through the many steps and exercises required in Strategic Planning.    The result has left us with a vastly more energized and involved Board and a plan for the future and longevity of our relatively young cultural endeavor.”  -Paul Surapine, Founding Executive & Artistic Director, Claflin Hill Music Performance Foundation, Inc.
