In an era of increased federal fiscal accountability, HFA has partnered with state and local governments to develop fiscal systems that maximize federal revenue and at the same time meet all federal audit requirements.  We have worked with State Medicaid agencies, local governments and community based organizations to create integrated data management and documentation systems. 

Our knowledge of federal laws, regulations and policies has resulted in systems that expedite federal approval of specific claiming methodologies.  These systems are highly automated, efficient and simple to use.  They are not simple in design, and reflect the many nuances and exceptions that must be addressed in any federal claiming effort.  Their complexity recognizes the differences in size and program scope among the many users.

We approach our work with our clients at many levels. We keep the big picture in mind, but know that our value is in applying the picture to the needs and circumstances of a particular agency.  Our strength is our ability to see problems from many perspectives.  We know policy, programming and financing, and we know that effective consulting is based on the ability to work in all three areas simultaneously. 

We use our knowledge of federal and state policy to develop the full range of tools needed to make a program work, from automated data systems and policy manuals to training materials and documentation forms.  

We are flexible, pragmatic, and thorough.  We blend social work, accounting, computer systems, and resource management (human and data) to build good products for our clients.

The integration of policy, programming and financing require a special set of skills, which we have.  Depending on the project, we clarify federal and state policies relevant to a program objective, lead strategic planning efforts, assess needs, consult on program design, develop tools for implementation, train staff, evaluate effectiveness, and build the financing needed for sustainability.

We do this work across systems – child welfare, juvenile justice, public health, mental health, early childhood, and education.  We listen to our clients, and value our ability to speak honestly with them about unanticipated issues or needs.

We measure our success in the knowledge base we are committed to transferring to our client partners.
