FAQs

Yes, but we offer much more than that. Widelity has not only established professional connections with federal agencies and prominent suppliers, we actively develop and maintain our knowledge of the current landscape of government funding. We are compliance experts who provide support through every phase of a government program, from application to post-award reporting.

Most programs include a percentage of funds that can be used for pre-application expenses, project management, and reporting. Eligibility for coverage is dependent on the program, scope, timing, and type of services required, and must be written into the submitted budget. We will make it clear in our preliminary discussions whether reimbursement is likely so that you can make an informed decision.

Widelity’s services reduce the time to reimbursement by anticipating and eliminating delays as much as possible. We familiarize ourselves with a program’s ins and outs, the technical requirements of the application, any documentation needed, and the best practices of the governing body disbursing the funds to find the most direct route between you and the funding you need.

There are three phases of engagement with Widelity: The application phase, the curative phase, and the post-award phase. Widelity can assist you in facing the challenges of each step of the process and reducing delays caused by filing or compliance issues. We will begin with a consultation to establish your needs and how our services will best benefit your project.

While we keep things simple by assigning you a direct contact, all of Widelity’s team is dedicated to completing the work for your project in a timely manner. Our skilled team members coordinate behind the scenes to ensure accurate and prompt processing of documents.

Widelity advocates for our clients on a daily basis. We work closely with fund administrators and our contacts within agencies to navigate funding obstacles and find alternatives that remain fully within the confines of program requirements. Widelity uses our many years of experience to achieve client needs in a way that is ethical and capable of withstanding audits, reviews, and government oversight.
