Maurice Aguirre Philanthropist: LDA and Prohibitions on the Use of Federal Funds For
Lobbying
Maurice Aguirre Dallas Strategic Consultant: The LDA does not itself regulate lobbying by
federal grantees, or contractors, though other laws, as well as contractual prohibitions, may
apply. Questions concerning lobbying activities of federal grantees or contractors should be
directed to the appropriate agency or office administrating the contract or grant.
Note, however, that Section 18 of the LDA prohibits 501(c)(4) organizations who engage in
lobbying activities from receiving federal funds through an award, grant or contract.
