Our Sectors

For more than 20 years, the professionals at Keller Partners & Company (KPC) have built an impressive track record of success working on behalf of the following diverse sectors:

Health Care

Hospitals, medical centers and clinics understand that health care policy and wellness funding will remain perhaps the most volatile and controversial issue at the federal and state levels of government for years to come. Keller Partners has significant health care experience and expertise with hospitals and medical centers, health care trade associations, research institutions, and health coalitions.

Higher Education

Keller Partners offers extensive experience achieving the goals of public and private higher education entities at the federal and state level. Our strengths are: 1) pursuing grant funding, 2) tracking legislation and policy, 3) keeping our clients regularly informed, and 4) weighing in at the right time in appropriations and authorization processes that impact higher education. Our clients have accomplished major federal policy and funding objectives in the areas of Science Technology Engineering and Math (STEM), nursing, research, student aid, international programs, scholarships, vocational training, and workforce development.

Local Governments and Municipalities

Keller Partners is proud to have partnered with locally elected leaders accomplish their objectives on behalf of their villages, towns, cities, authorities and counties by securing funding and providing support at the federal and state level. Local leaders are dedicated public servants who work tirelessly (and often thanklessly) to provide essential services to their constituents. This dedication inspires us. We are proud that our work contributes to improving the quality of life for the people who are ultimately served by their local governments.

Social Service and Faith-Based Organizations

Our vision and passion has always been to serve organizations that help others. Social service and faith-based organizations are the backbone of feeding people, housing people, educating people, curing diseases, providing job training, and giving hope to the hopeless. Both federal and state governments can either be a vital partner or a serious hindrance to such organizations. The professionals at Keller Partners have successfully represented these agencies in every category. It is this kind of work that inspires us on a daily basis.

Transportation and Infrastructure

The professionals at Keller Partners have helped secure federal funding for highways, roads, streetscape improvements, pedestrian overpasses, ports, intermodal facilities, and transit bus operations and facilities. We will help you prepare for the new Administration support of the funding of more than $1 trillion in infrastructure projects. We also work to advance and protect our clients' policy interests in all major federal transportation appropriations and authorization bills.

Small Business and Corporations

The federal government and state governments are significant customers for small businesses. Corporations are faced with significant issues that require them to be proactive and to intervene with federal and state governments. Keller Partners’ professionals have worked with small business and corporate clients at all levels of government to help them win coveted listings on the GSA schedule, and government contracts and regulatory relief. We will help you to identify potential product development, marketing and procurement opportunities at the federal and state levels of government and within the private sector.

International Relations and Foreign Assistance

In the complex world of federal policy and funding, achieving foreign assistance and international relations objectives is perhaps the most challenging. And with the advent of a new Administration, the landscape becomes more unpredictable and makes client objectives that much more challenging. And yet, Keller Partners has a long and well-documented track record of doing exactly that - achieving objectives for clients in Africa, Eastern Europe, Central America, South East Asia, and the Middle East. We have succeeded in securing favorable federal policies, legislative language, and hundreds of millions of dollars to advance the work of international NGOs, universities, research institutions, healthcare organizations, social service agencies, and faith-based nonprofits. We achieve our clients' international relations and foreign assistance objectives by careful planning and implementation of proven strategies that leverage the Congress, State Department, USAID Washington headquarters, US missions abroad, and in-country professional staff.

Defense and Homeland Security

The professionals at Keller Partners has helped a wide variety of clients achieve their legislative, business development, and funding objectives through the Department of Defense and the Department of Homeland Security. Specifically, we have helped municipalities, corporations, universities, medical centers, and major research institutions advance their respective missions by winning the support of the Department of Defense, Department of Homeland Security, and the congressional committees with jurisdiction over them.

K-12 Education

The professionals at Keller Partners have a long history of handling K-12 education issues for a variety of clients, and possess a documented track record of securing federal funding and achieving legislative victories. We have partnered with large school districts, leading special-education providers, educational testing companies, and other nonprofit education-related organizations.

Research and Development

The professionals at Keller Partners have represented some of our nation's most prestigious research institutions. We are also especially proud to have helped small universities and medical centers achieve breakthrough successes at the federal level. We have helped our clients achieve their research and development objectives before the Congress and federal agencies, including the National Institutes of Health (NIH), National Science Foundation (NSF), Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), Centers for Disease Control (CDC), Department of Health and Human Services, and the Department of Defense.


Given the federal government's budgetary constraints, housing policy and funding are routinely among the most critical and controversial issues debated. Keller Partners’ professionals have had significant experience in shaping these debates. We have been involved in policy and funding work affecting the FHA, public housing (including HOPE IV), Community Development Block Grants (CDBG), HOME, low-income housing tax credits, Section 8, Section 811, Section 202, and HOPWA housing, as well as natural disaster assistance. We have strong working relationships at the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) and community development agencies, and within the congressional committees having jurisdiction over federal housing policy.


Energy, clean energy and alternative energy are among the most dynamic federal policy areas. Keller Partners’ expertise lies at the center of this constantly changing policy, legislative, funding, and regulatory framework. Keller Partners has experience planning and implementing comprehensive strategies to grow our clients' respective bottom-lines by securing federal funding, achieving federal regulatory reform, advocating for effective policies and legislation, identifying research and development opportunities, and securing federal contracts.

Water Resources

Keller Partners’ professionals have handled virtually every federal water-related issue. We have helped clients secure significant funding for water, storm water, emergency flood, and port projects as well as navigate complex wetlands regulations. We have also helped clients achieve their objectives with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.

Our track record of success touches virtually every sector and industry.
