Grants Assistance and Federal Funding

Businesses and communities face immense difficulties navigating the realm of federal funding. Faegre Baker Daniels Consulting works to develop strategies designed to optimize the level of federal funding our clients can receive. 

In Washington, D.C., it is critical to match an organization's priorities with federal funding priorities and opportunities. FaegreBD Consulting uses its 20 years of experience with the federal budgeting and appropriations processes to assist clients in seeking federal funding sources. We help clients develop multifaceted funding strategies to utilize congressional appropriations, competitive grants authorizations, tax credits, direct loan and loan guarantees, as well as in-kind funding assistance.

Grants Assistance

A congressional ban on earmarks in 2011 has required applicants seeking federal funding to shift their focus to competitive grant applications. Faegre Baker Daniels Consulting has assisted clients in searching for relevant opportunities, evaluating whether or not to pursue these opportunities, and advised on and written grant applications. Since the ban on earmarks went into place, FaegreBD Consulting has assisted clients in pursuing grant applications to numerous federal agencies, including:

  • Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD)
  • Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)
  • Department of Defense (DOD)
  • Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS)
  • Department of Energy (DOE)
  • Economic Development Administration (EDA)
  • Federal Transit Administration (FTA)
  • Department of the Treasury (Treasury)
  • Department of Transportation (DOT)
  • National Institutes of Health (NIH)

Energy and Environment Federal Funding

As Congress and the Executive Branch agencies create and implement public policy programs in the energy, environment and climate change areanas, the money dedicated to them is at its highest level ever. We help clients investigate and utilize all avenues of funding because climate change, environment and energy policy directly influences economic development initiatives, public safety, homeland security enhancements, transit, road improvements, flood control and wastewater treatment, riverfront development and housing, and neighborhood revitalization projects.

Examples of our experience include:

  • Program identification and advocacy services regarding statutory authority, Congressional appropriations, competitive grants, tax credits, direct loan and loan guarantees, as well as in-kind funding assistance
  • Guidance and advice on writing and finalizing federal funding applications, including building and managing a network of grant-writers, environmental consultants and other experts
  • Discovery of innovative federal funding sources for "green" universities and "green" cities
  • Securing environmental incentives-based federal funding for communities and construction products
  • Assisting in LEED certification for buildings clients are building, leasing or acquiring
  • Congressional funding for sewage and other water projects required by the Clean Water Act
  • Extensive assistance in applying for transit-related development funding
  • Development and implementation of a plan to secure $30 million in federal funding to make a 300-acre Superfund brownfield site available for redevelopment
