BGR’s Appropriations Practice assists clients with navigating all phases of the federal funding process including identifying funding opportunities, submitting official requests to Congressional offices and working with federal agencies to expedite the release of appropriated funds. Through a deep understanding of the federal budget process, including the interaction between Congressional subcommittees and government agencies, we help clients effectively navigate the complex federal funding process and deliver concrete appropriations results. 

BGR works with clients to help identify funding opportunities and secure increases in program funding, as well as instructive language in appropriations bills and committee reports. We have a track record of helping clients secure directed Congressional appropriations in the form of earmarks. 

Our efforts are not limited to appropriations bills. We help clients creatively identify opportunities to pursue competitive public and private funding opportunities and enlist local, state and federal allies to make the strongest case for securing necessary funds. We ensure all grant requirements are met and deadlines are adhered to. 

The BGR team’s wide breadth of experiences and perspectives has driven successful appropriations strategies at both the state and federal levels. With expertise across all government agencies, our bipartisan team ensures clients get results.
