Economic Impact Analysis
Appleseed’s economic impact analyses help clients understand the scope and magnitude of their contributions to the local and regional economy – through their existing operations, major expansion initiatives, or both – and help them communicate effectively with key audiences about these contributions. Economic impact analyses can also help clients evaluate investment alternatives.
Economic & Project Development
Appleseed’s economic development planning practice involves analysis of current economic, demographic, and real estate market conditions and trends; helping clients define their development objectives; and preparing development strategies, project plans and implementation programs aimed at helping them realize these objectives.
Economic, Social, & Public Policy Research
Our economic, social, and public policy research helps clients understand how changes in economic and social conditions, as well as changes in public policy, affect their development prospects. We also help clients identify and advocate changes in public policy that will help promote economic growth and opportunity.
Strategic Planning & Program Development
Appleseed helps agencies and non-profits formulate strategies and develop new programs aimed at serving their constituencies more effectively. We also help our clients secure financing for new programs and projects. Our experience includes strategic planning, program development, and project funding in such areas as workforce development, small business assistance, and community services.
