About this grant

Faced with an ongoing deficit environment, federal policymakers will continue to consider deep cuts in domestic discretionary and entitlement spending programs that could potentially have severe ramifications for the nation’s social and economic priorities. This grant will enable the Hatcher Group to continue providing strategic communications assistance to state groups working to educate policymakers, the media, and the public about the federal deficit and various deficit reduction proposals under consideration. The Hatcher Group is a Washington, D.C.-based public affairs firm that helps improve the advocacy efforts of nonprofit organizations by connecting its research and knowledge to key audiences who shape public policy.
