ABOUT US

SUCCESS SINCE 1985

For more than 30 years, our team has provided community revitalization services, rooted in data and technology, to public and private sector clients. Our core capabilities remain our award-winning ePropertyPlus software, a property management system developed in consultation with Center for Community Progress and Michigan land banks, and our insightful business consulting services. Today, we support more than 30 government and private sector community development organizations nationwide.

eProperty Innovations LLC includes ePropertyPlus™, our property management system, and eProperty Solutions, our strategic consulting services.

Prior to 2019, eProperty Innovations was named STR. Grants LLC and was owned by parent company STR LLC.

As STR.Grants, we produced and managed the successful eGrantsPlus platform that supported the $8 billion HUD/CDBG-funded Road Home homeowner rebuilding program for victims of Hurricanes Katrina and Rita. Upon the sale of the eGrantsPlus platform in 2019, STR LLC was renamed Defense BudgETT and STR.Grants L.L.C. was renamed eProperty Innovations LLC.

Our company remains a veteran-owned small business based in Fairfax, VA.
