About Us


Our mission statement

We make positive change happen for communities, from the ground up

Do you have a vision for a project that will transform your community economically, culturally, or environmentally?
Do you want to bring in a team that will truly listen to and understand your needs?
Would your project benefit from grant funding?

MacLeod Farley & Associates is a consulting firm dedicated to progressive community economic development projects

Process from Idea to Funding to Results

You provide the vision, and we provide a proven process to ensure that your vision becomes reality. Our role often starts at the earliest stages of project concept development and planning and moves on to financing, construction and operations. We can be there to support you every step of the way.

Our fundamental belief is that communities know what is best for their people. We start by listening and getting to know you, your community, and your unique challenges and needs. From there, we provide the strategic planning process, access to funding, and the additional expertise you need to make your project happen.
