Latest Addition Reflects Growing Grant Proposal Project Work
Kamron Brant, who was a staff assistant for outgoing Washington Congresswoman Jamie Herrera Beutler, is the latest addition to the CFM Federal Affairs team. Brant will research, write and edit grant proposals for the firm’s mostly Pacific Northwest clients.
“Kam’s excellent communication and organizational skills will help our team submit compelling, well-crafted grant applications that result in funding for client projects,” says Joel Rubin, CFM Federal Affairs Partner. “His Pacific Northwest background and congressional experience positions him to hit the road running.”
CFM’s federal affairs practice has experienced significant growth in the past two years. Brant is the eighth member of the CFM Federal Affairs team, five of whom are based in Washington and three in Southwest Washington.
Brant graduated from Oregon State University in 2018 with a bachelor’s degree in political science and economics. He earned a master’s degree in international affairs in 2020 from The Catholic University of America in Washington, DC.
After graduating from OSU, Brant worked in Vancouver before moving to the nation’s capital to pursue his graduate degree. While attending graduate school, he interned for the Internet Security Alliance, a nonprofit focused on cyber-security issues, and for Herrera Beutler before being hired earlier this year as a full-time staff assistant in her office. Herrera Beutler served on the House Appropriations Committee.
Brant is an Eagle Scout who has been involved with the Boys Scouts since 2001. Environmental stewardship and conservation are extremely important to Brant and he loves to incorporate these values into recreational activities. He also has volunteered for the Special Olympics while in college, emphasizing the importance of community service in his life. His hobbies include hiking, spearfishing and playing board games. Brant, his wife and dog live in Arlington, Virginia.
“Being able to work on federal Issues and represent organizations from the region that I call home is a dream come true,” Brant says. “My family has called the Pacific Northwest home for more than 125 years and supporting our communities back home is extremely rewarding for me.”
