Lobbying & Advocacy

Whether researching and drafting new legislative initiatives, or lobbying lawmakers on authorization and appropriations, Rapoza Associates works closely with clients to create opportunities and solve problems. After four decades of working on Capitol Hill, we know what works and what doesn’t. We will never advise clients to take actions that amount to little more than checking a box. We develop and advance realistic, results-oriented legislative strategies to build the broad support necessary to move legislation forward.

Client-driven from start to finish. 

Our hands-on approach and experience working with clients and communities helps us argue the merits of the programs on Capitol Hill–making it clear we’re not just talking the talk. We work with our clients to define organizational objectives and enhance their capacity to effectively impact the policymaking process.

Always prepared, always Flexible. 

One thing that is a constant in Washington, is that things are always changing. Any successful legislative or regulatory strategy requires agility, and the Rapoza team has the knowledge and creativity to provide clients with the tools needed to navigate the twists and turns.

Issues and opportunities do not exist in a vacuum.

Our staff listens first, establishing a solid understanding of the issues clients are facing, and then suggests tactics. We are committed to building a deep understanding of our clients’ objectives, creating strategies that navigate the nuances of the overall mission of the organization.
