We pride ourselves on our ability to serve public sector clients of all sizes, enabling us to remain among the top independent lobbying firms in Washington. We specialize in securing policy and regulatory changes, federal funding, grants, and authorizations for cities, counties, towns, institutions of higher education, non-profit organizations, private companies, and national associations.  We play a leadership role in helping both the Administration and Congress understand how changes in Washington affect local agencies so our clients can build stronger communities for this generation and the next.

For 37 years, we have provided federal advocacy services to public and private entities in almost every state, including counties, cities, public works agencies, and joint powers authorities. We also advocate on behalf of national organizations focused on federal issues directly impacting local government: the National Association of Towns and Townships, the Manufacturing Alliance of Communities, and the Perfect Storm Communities Coalition.

Our depth of expertise, commitment and effectiveness are reflected in a proven track record of delivering measurable results for our clients in federal funding, authorizations, policy, and regulatory decision-making processes. Our knowledge of both Congress and the Administration provides our clients with a unique strategic advantage that puts them in the best position for success.

Focus on Local Communities

From day one, TFG's focus has been representing local communities in Washington, D.C. and empowering them with a voice in the nation's capitol. We look at national policy from the perspective of local agencies and work to ensure the decisions being made by Congress and the Administration don't have a negative impacts on local governments and help open doors to bring federal resources home.

TFG professionals develop productive and long-standing relationships with our clients.  One of the cornerstones of our success is our level of communication and personalized service.
