Before partnering with Merchant McIntyre, Pensacola State had already established an impressive track record of securing federal grants. For example, the College is a regular recipient of a highly competitive DoEd TRIO award, the DOJ Campus Program, and numerous other grants at the state and federal levels. Merchant McIntyre leveraged these existing institutional strengths and created a comprehensive federal funding strategy and a detailed grants grid to extend Pensacola State’s reach beyond traditional funding streams.
As a result, Merchant McIntyre helped Pensacola State win significant funding from multiple federal agencies. Our wins for Pensacola State include:
- $2.45 million to support a local small business incubator. (Source: Economic Development Administration)
- $2.25 million in Title III funding to improve student support services. (Source: Department of Education)
- $1.6 million to develop a truck driver training program and facility. (Source: Economic Development Administration)
- $592K to support technical programs in welding and advanced manufacturing. (Source: National Science Foundation)
