North America Funding Program

We help turn your plans into projects by simplifying a complex and competitive process.

In its simplest form, the North America Funding Program (NAFP) is a matchmaking program. It starts with connecting our funding specialists to our account managers who have clients with funding needs.

Through the program, our funding specialists help our clients in three areas: research and strategy, application preparation, and grant administration.

Stantec is one of the first substantial design firms to offer funding support as part of its services, and we work with both new and existing clients to help them reach their goals.

From securing low-interest loans to facilitating government grants, the NAFP has saved clients millions of dollars and become a trusted partner in community development and transformational projects.

A creative idea, innovation funding, and a strong relationship

Whether it’s a brownfield redevelopment, a new park, or a water treatment plant expansion, our specialists can help you de-mystify the funding process. We liaise between your organization, external funding agencies, and our staff, helping develop achievable funding strategies to turn projects into reality. Our job is to help you identify and develop funding-eligible projects and to facilitate successful grant and loan applications. We help you administer the funds, and we ensure compliance with funding and reporting requirements.

NAFP in action

Through the NAFP, Stantec was able to secure more than $650 million in low-interest loans for an existing client and its water supply project in Oregon. These low-interest loans helped our client secure even more funding for its $1.3 billion project, ultimately saving it more than $250 million.
