Kansas City Covid-19 Response

Hit hard by the COVID-19 pandemic, Kansas City, Missouri required advanced financial and advisory services to weather the storm.


  • Identify & track both federal and local policies regarding emergency funding. By combining our expertise in federal policy with the on-the-ground expertise of our subcontractors local to the Kansas City metro, WBD proactively identified and cataloged guidance regarding eligible pandemic response expenditures.
  • Implement a reporting tool used to align the City’s accounting systems to federal & state guidelines on reporting expectations. Drawing from our experience in tracking billions of dollars across the federal government, WBD developed a comprehensive tracking and dashboard tool in order to coherently integrate and explicate the City’s financial and contractual data.
  • Project revenues and expenditures for the city using long-term budgetary and revenue analysis. By analyzing past recessions and the ongoing recovery in other municipalities across the country, WBD’s team helped to prepare Kansas City for the long-term impacts of the on-going recession and pandemic.
