Community Project Funding

House Appropriations Committee Chair Rosa DeLauro (D-CT) announced in February 2021 that the House of Representatives will accept Member requests for Community Project Funding in appropriations bills for the upcoming fiscal year. Community Projects Funding are congressional provisions that direct funds toward a specific project within a community. Community Project Funding allows Members to put their deep, first-hand understanding of the needs of their communities to work to help the people we represent and will make Congress more responsive to the people.

Constituents can submit their Community Project Funding requests using THIS FORM. Submissions will be accepted through April 16, 2021.

Members are required to post every Community Project Funding request online simultaneously with their submission to the Committee. This page will be updated with request information as they are submitted.
