The National Group provides for its clients a comprehensive suite of grant services through a partnership with Washington Strategic Consulting. Our grants division employs a staff of highly qualified experts in the specialized field of pursuing grants, whether federal, state or foundation. We offer a full array of services, depending on an organization’s specific needs, including:

  • Providing hands-on management for short-term, time-sensitive and highly technical projects
  • Working on a long-term basis to build self-sustaining fundraising programs for organizations of any size
  • Serving as an institution's full-service grants department
  • Establishing practices and mechanisms within an organization that allows for a team approach to seeking federal grant opportunities by bringing to bear the talents and resources of professionals across the departments and divisions of mid and large size organizations.

To enhance your chances of winning highly competitive grant competitions, The National Group brings the full weight of its lobbying experience and contacts to bear on your behalf. We mine federal agencies for information about priorities and direction as they evolve from one budget year to the next. We also work closely with your Congressional delegation, giving them full briefings on your programs and projects, keep your initiatives on their front burners, and convincing Members of Congress to weigh in in support of your applications at key times in the process.
