In the post-earmarks era, “plus-up” funding and agency grants are the most prominent avenues to secure federal financial support. Plus-ups are projects funded as a result of a non-public request by a Member of Congress. Existing programs receive additional funding to expand current operations in a manner targeted at a client project. Utilizing this process, we have been able to secure much-needed funding for clients. To find out if your organization is eligible, please contact us.
We also work with clients to identify grants for which they are eligible, and assist them with application and award process. Upon the application’s submission, we build support with important congressional constituencies, including the applicants’ home Members, appropriate committees of jurisdiction, relevant caucuses, and other Members involved in that specific issue area to communicate support to the target agency/office.
