Funding strategies

MCFA provides clients the tools to execute required projects with limited impacts on existing budgets. MCFA uses innovative strategies to help meet sustainability and growth requirements utilizing public/private partnerships.

Glassboro Camden Line

MCFA is preparing and executing the Financial Plan of an 18 mile Light Rail Transit (LRT) project in South Jersey.  Specific tasks include the development of a P3 strategy, capital plan and operating plan.  This project links the Redeveloping City of Camden with an exploding academic center in Glassboro.

MCFA is also preparing station plans for the 12 stops along the line. Traditional planning services include vehicular access identification, platform design, bike / pedestrian circulation and access, community coordination and land use planning. Key in this effort is identifying potential Transit Oriented Developments (TOD) that could benefit the effort.

Monetization of Underutilized Assets – Air Force Civil Engineering Center

MCFA is currently supporting Air Force Civil Engineering Center (AFCEC) in the identification, planning, procurement, development and execution of multiple energy Enhanced Use Leasing (EUL) opportunities at Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst (JBMDL) in New Jersey. The opportunities at JBMDL include the potential to develop a utility-scale natural gas combined-cycle plant along with multiple renewable generation projects at the JBMDL.

Potential benefits of this monetization of underutilized assets included energy security and resiliency for JBMDL along with a significant return on assets (ROA).  This project also supports an overall sustainability effort by the base to optimize the resources of the region. MCFA is also supporting the outreach and coordination with the State of NJ Board of Public Utilities, Burlington and Ocean County along with local municipalities.
