NFR serves cities, school systems, community groups and non-profit organizations throughout Michigan, and also works on region-wide projects, especially those that affect arts and cultural development, the environment, and the future of the Great Lakes. NFR concentrates on "Quality of Life" issues.

Managing partners Blair McGowan and Jim Moran have worked on social and cultural development and environmental issues in the southeast Michigan area for over 30 years each, and have built an energetic staff with a wide range of skills. We have six full-time and eight part-time staff and access to a number of contractors, based on the clients' needs.

NFR hires post-graduate university students with degrees in areas such as Urban Planning, Sustainable Development, Science, Social Science and other environmental disciplines who are motivated and want to make their mark doing important work for communities and the non-profit sector who want to get things done. Hiring energetic, knowledgeable people at the beginning of their careers allows NFR to offer its clients the maximum results for the lowest possible price.

  WHAT: NFR performs several valuable functions for our clients:
Grant Writing Fundraising Campaigns Project Planning
Community Planning Downtown Development Master Planning
Environmental Planning Greenway Development Brownfield Funding
Publications Presentation Materials Public Awareness Campaigns
  WHERE: NFR is a ten-year-old company with offices in Ann Arbor and Wyandotte, Michigan. We also have employees in nearly every city we serve.
  HOW: NFR uses modern, time-saving technologies, and has an in-house publication capacity. Its independent contractors connect to NFR electronically from their home offices, so NFR keeps a very low overhead and passes that savings on to our clients.
