CapGov’s team consists of legislative and policy experts that have extensive experience in representing clients across the entire gambit of federal processes. A client’s objective(s) will determine which avenue is pursued and the precise role played by CapGov. In certain instances, CapGov’s services will constitute “lobbying” under federal law; other times, a client’s federal agenda can be perused and achieved through means that do not constitute “lobbying.” In many cases, however, CapGov will engage in both “lobbying” and non-lobbying activities to further a client’s federal agenda.
CapGov has an unwavering policy of strict compliance with federal law governing “lobbying” and complies fully with corresponding disclosure requirements. Additionally, CapGov associates maintain the highest ethical standards.

The first step to securing federal funding is to identify prospective funding opportunities. Federal funding can take many forms, from congressional appropriations to competitive grants, from contracts to procurement, etc. Funding opportunities are abundant and arise almost daily across the federal government. These opportunities, however, are almost always time sensitive. Timely identification of new funding avenues as they arise is critical.
In order to successfully identify funding opportunities for its clients, CapGov continuously monitors both public and private publications, tracks new and developing legislation and taps its vital network of congressional staff and agency personnel to keep apprised of the latest funding opportunities as they are released.
Occasionally, existing funding opportunities may not squarely fit a client’s expertise, capability or need. In these instances, CapGov works with program managers, members of congress and agency officials to develop new funding initiatives (or amend existing opportunities) to the benefit our client.
Working closely with federal executive agencies such as the Dept. of Defense, Dept. of Energy, Dept. of Education, Dept. of Labor, NIH, NSF, etc. is critical to the grant process. Building strong relationships with key agency personnel and forging partnerships with program managers within the agencies is a crucial means to securing federal funding through the grant process.
CapGov recognizes the importance of such relationships and actively assists its clients in identifying potential partners and assists in establishing strategic partnerships. Our team then works to coordinate and communicate the partnership’s similar interests before congress and executive agencies.
