What our clients have to say.
  • I was very impressed with the demonstration of CGR's Cost/Benefit Analysis specifically designed for Industrial Development Agencies. It's easy to use, affordable and offers economic development professionals an effective tool to measure potential projects.

    William Mannix Administrative Director, Town of Islip IDA
  • Now is the time for economic development agencies to consider using a cost benefit analysis model. Resources are scarcer than ever and must be used carefully to create the highest level of private sector investment and quality jobs. Plus, a thoughtful cost benefit analysis will naturally generate a broader range of support for a project from community stakeholders.
