Port Milwaukee Agricultural Maritime Export Facility PIDP Grant

EBP performed the benefit-cost analysis for the successful Port Infrastructure Development Program (PIDP) grant application for Phase Two of the Port Milwaukee Agricultural Maritime Export Facility. 

The agricultural export facility, operated by a major agricultural commodity processor and distributor, will construct two grain storage silos, make electrical service upgrades, and fund purchase of additional grain and cargo handling equipment to expand the capacity of the port to handle the movement of grain commodities.  The project was awarded a $9.3 million grant.

The EBP team has decades of experience in benefit-cost analysis (BCA) work, including successful consultation on transportation grant applications, ranging from performing the required benefit-cost analysis to preparing the full application, and resulting in over $375M in grant awards. The firm offers a wide spectrum of BCA tools recognized by USDOT, including easily understood and communicated spreadsheet applications, as well as the Multimodal Benefit Cost Analysis tool available through TREDIS software.

 EBP is always ready to apply its experience in grant support.
