Appropriations & Budget

The federal appropriations process is one of the most important parts of public policy. Unlike authorizing bills, which establish programs and policies, appropriations bills fund programs and must pass every year, or the federal government shuts down. “Continuing resolutions,” “sequester,” “Budget Control Act,” “omnibus” may be terms well known inside the Beltway, but are often misunderstood.  The Roosevelt Group has a sophisticated understanding of these topics and helps clients succeed in the era of fiscal austerity.

The Roosevelt Group assists many public- and private-sector clients secure federal funds through the budget process, federal contracts and grants awarded competitively by federal agencies. We represent a broad-range of clients seeking funds from many different federal agencies. Members of our team have particular expertise with programs in the Department of Defense, Department of Homeland Security, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration and intelligence community. We have developed significant relationships with officials in these and other agencies and work closely with them to support our clients’ priorities.
