Proven Results:

Mike was instrumental in helping identify grant money that a client was awarded, but would not have received if it wasn’t for the due diligence of our Audit Department. Upon further research, Donna Crowley, a Senior Auditor with the firm, confirmed with our local Senator that certain paperwork needed to be filed in order for our client to receive their grant money. Mike assisted our client with completing the proper paperwork and submitting it to New York State to receive two grants totaling $15,000.
