Brian Royer


Brian Royer, JD, as its newest project manager, working out of our Central Valley office. He received his Juris Doctor from Vermont Law School with an emphasis on federal resource law and Native American legal studies.

Mr. Royer’s interest in resource law began at an early age through a seasonal backcountry internship with the California Conservation Corps, building trails in Kings Canyon National Park, which subsequently turned into a 14-year career with the National Park Service and US Forest Service agencies.

Mr. Royer graduated from Vermont Law School with a strong focus in federal resource law. He clerked for the US Department of Interior in Santa Fe, New Mexico, providing legal analysis for senior staff on issues pertaining to the National Environmental Policy Act, National Historic Preservation Act, and the Federal Torts Claim Act. He also served as a student clinician with the school’s Indian Country Environmental Justice Clinic.

After returning to California, Mr. Royer has worked in the private sector as a legal regulatory consultant while furthering his grant writing experience with federal and state agencies. California Consulting is pleased to welcome Mr. Royer to our Central Valley office, as we continue to strengthen our Central Valley clients’ position statewide with our advocacy, grant writing, and research services.

California Consulting LLC Announces the Release of California Office of Traffic Safety (OTS): 2017 Emergency Medical Services GME Grant

California Office of Traffic Safety (OTS): 2017 Emergency Medical Services GME Grant

Deadline: January 30, 2016

Amount: Varies.  Applicants asked to provide reasonable costs for the requested services.

Match: None required

Eligibility: Cities, counties, fire protection districts

The city/county/fire protection district will serve as the lead agency for a regional extrication equipment distribution grant for their county using this OTS Grants Made Easy (GME) application. The extrication equipment is used by first responders to safely extricate victims trapped in traffic collisions. “Best practice” strategies will be used to reduce the response time for the arrival of appropriate extrication equipment to traffic collision scenes and the time to extricate the victims of traffic collision, thus increasing survivability. The grant will provide funding for new equipment and training for fire departments without extrication equipment or those that have existing equipment that has reached the end of its usable lifespan and is in need of replacement.
