WASHINGTON, July 15, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Rapoza Associates, a distinctively mission-driven lobbying and government relations firm, launched its new website today. The website highlights the firm's commitment and work to shape congressional and federal policies that build stronger communities across the nation. Founded in 1984 by Robert A. Rapoza, a community and rural development policy expert with over 40 years of experience in Washington, the firm has a strong bipartisan track record.
"Over the years, our firm has successfully lobbied for the protection and expansion of community development programs, rural housing, job training and Head Start funding, among many others," says Bob Rapoza, President and Founder of Rapoza Associates. "We know how Congress works and understand what it takes to get bills passed and amendments into appropriations, housing bills, community development legislation, farm bills and tax legislation."
In particular, Rapoza Associates provides lobbying and government relation support for nonprofit, community development organizations, associations, and coalitions. The firm helps clients manage their membership data and activities, research and draft new legislative initiatives and lobby lawmakers on authorization and appropriations that affect their constituencies.
"Now, more than ever, policymakers are skeptical about federal programs and policies. We know arguments based on research and analysis are key in making the case to decision-makers in Washington," says Rapoza. "That's why we are committed to spending time with clients, taking a hands-on approach to learn the intricacies of their issues, so we can argue the merits of the programs on Capitol Hill–making it clear we know what we are talking about."
