Witt O’Brien’s

Witt O’Brien’s was founded by recognized innovators in crisis and emergency management, across both government and the private sector. Over the past two decades, we’ve grown from a specialization in disaster management, to support a full range of community and federally funded resilience-building programs, from community engagement and constituent-focused programs to housing and infrastructure planning, emergency management, fiscal policy, and economic development.

Building strong, sustainable, and resilient communities requires the careful integration of multiple initiatives. We support our clients with a range of federal ad-hoc legislative appropriations and programs that enable transformative opportunities for state and local governments, including:

  • CARES Act-allocated Coronavirus Relief Fund strategy development and compliant implementation
  • ARPA-allocated State and Local Fiscal Recovery Fund and Capital Projects Fund
  • Infrastructure Improvement and Jobs Act-allocated programs, including broadband initiatives
  • Build Back Better Economic Development Competitive Grant Programs administered by the EDA
  • HUD’s Community Development Block Grant (CDBG)
  • HOME, ESG, SSBG, CCDBG, and EDA funding streams
  • Critical housing programs such as the Emergency Rental Assistance Program (ERAP) and the Homeowners Assistance Fund (HAF).
  • Multi-jurisdiction regional planning
  • Affordable housing development and housing trust fund creation, deployment, and implementation
  • Equity framework development and integration into new and existing programs and initiatives

Today, our mission is to be a force-multiplier in building resilient communities in an unpredictable world. Everything we do is designed to help our government clients prepare, respond, recover and mitigate.
