Whether you're seeking a policy change at a federal agency, funding for local infrastructure, training programs or the funding of a government contract or grant for corporate or nonprofit clients, having an experienced advocate who understands the process is key.
Holland & Knight has an established budget and appropriations practice in Washington, D.C., with extensive experience in all aspects of federal appropriations law. Our Federal Budget & Appropriations Team has secured billions of dollars and exceptional policy results over the last decade for clients. We understand the process and know how, where and when to intervene.
With more than a century of experience among our team members, we have developed excellent working relationships with key members of Congress and staff of the appropriations committees in both the House and the Senate. In addition, we have extensive experience representing clients in front of key staff at critical agencies and in the White House, including the Office of Management and Budget.
There are 24 appropriations subcommittees between the House and the Senate. Each subcommittee has its own set of deadlines for funding requests. Many requests submitted on behalf of our clients involve the support of more than one member of Congress. Even with over 80 appropriations clients, 24 subcommittees, dozens of representatives and varied deadlines, members of the Federal Budget and Appropriations Team coordinate project schedules as part of our commitment to meet every deadline.
We have experience in drafting report language that has the intended outcome of instructing a federal agency to act in a positive manner for our clients, whether that be to conduct a study, undertake a particular policy activity, consider certain criteria when evaluating projects or to include client projects on key lists for potential funding.
Obtaining earmarked funding for projects is more challenging in the current federal budget environment than in previous years due to several factors, including increased scrutiny of budget expenditures. Holland & Knight's Federal Budget and Appropriations Team is committed to using our knowledge and experience for getting federal funding for our clients' projects.
