"I strive to ensure that the voices of my clients, and especially the smaller voices, are heard in the sometimes chaotic walls of Washington."

Kristi More joined TFG in 2000 and specializes in transportation, water, economic and rural development, agricultural, and federal funding for local governments. She is a former staff assistant for a California state representative; intern for the District of Columbia Office of the Corporation Counsel, concentrating on legal and legislative issues concerning the abuse and neglect of children and the elderly; and intern for the California Cattlemen’s Association, focusing on land, water, and air quality concerns surrounding the beef industry.

Since joining TFG, Kristi has concentrated on expanding the firm’s services to small, rural areas of the country. Born and raised in a small, rural county in California (population 20,000) that is abundant in natural resources and federal lands, Kristi understands the delicate balance smaller communities face when trying to address the needs of their citizens. Kristi has worked to develop working relationships between Congress, federal agencies, and her clients. These relationships have benefited the communities she works with through direct appropriations, authorizations, and funding as well as contributed to the Congressional offices gaining a better understanding of the unique problems and needs of rural communities and smaller public agencies. Along with representing individual cities and counties, Kristi has also worked diligently with special districts dedicated to a variety of community services including transportation, water, flood, irrigation, and community development.  In this regard, Kristi also leads TFG’s representation of the National Special Districts Coalition which is the only national organization representing and advocating for all special districts at a national level.

With twenty plus years of experience working with local governments, public agencies, and special districts of all sizes and from all over the country, Kristi has become an expert in knowing how to best position and prepare a project for funding assistance. From grants, to appropriations, to federal authorizations, Kristi has helped her clients secure hundreds of millions of dollars in funding for projects related to 911 Dispatch Centers, local library upgrades, sewer and storm drain rehabilitation, economic development, drug-endangered children’s programs, local and regional transportation infrastructure, water supply and conservation, drinking and waste water treatment, public safety, emergency response, and regional interoperable communications.

Kristi received her B.A. in Political Science from the University of California at Davis. She has been an invited speaker on western water issues, the federal appropriations and earmarking cycle, and the competitive grants process. Kristi also serves on TFG’s Management Committee as the Managing Partner of Strategic Development and Grant Services.
