Federal Opportunities & Funding Support

R36 Solutions provides client-centric, customized services to help our customers shape Federal and State funding opportunities and develop high quality funding proposals, thus maximizing their ability to secure funding.

Our team includes former high-ranking government officials who have extensive firsthand experience in both developing Federal grant proposals for clients and evaluating proposals while on the “inside” as government officials. Our team has worked with a range of Federal agencies on issues spanning basic research and development, telecommunications, energy, critical infrastructure technologies, economic development, defense, education, and workforce development.

How We Can Help

Identify Opportunities

R36 Solutions will monitor, research, identify, and track Federal and private funding opportunities that match our clients’ priorities and needs. Our team offers real-time scanning of federal opportunities that align with clients’ capabilities and expertise.

Develop a Funding and Messaging Strategy

We will help our clients develop concepts that resonate with policymakers and funders and create a customized funding and messaging strategy that advances our clients’ interests and elevates their visibility with program managers, potential funders and policymakers.

Develop, Write, and Deliver Proposals

We will guide our clients through every step in the proposal process, including proposal concept development, potential partner identification, writing, and editing proposals as well as providing compliance review against Request for Proposal Requirements, subject matter expert assessments and submission assistance.

Connect with Funders

We will help you forge relationships with Federal decision-makers, program managers, and policymakers who can help you achieve your goals.

Cultivate Congressional Support

If required, we will work with Congressional appropriators to secure funding for your priority projects and shore up your proposal by securing congressional letters in support for your submission.

Create New Opportunities

When existing funding opportunities don’t match the work our clients are doing, we will work to explore and possibly create new opportunities, either with federal agencies through the legislative process or in partnership with commercial enterprises seeking similar outcomes.

Our Work in Action

A member of the R36 Solutions team oversaw the California broadband and smart grid NTIA American Recovery and Reinvestment (ARRA) grants while serving as a senior technology policy official at the California Department of Technology.

Her deep expertise will be useful as Department of Commerce’s NTIA hands out a large percentage of the $65 billion in broadband funding to states for broadband access and adoption grants.
