Community Project Funding
As part of the fiscal year appropriations process, the House Appropriations Committee announced a new Community Project Funding (CPF) program.
To meet urgent needs of communities across the United States, the House Appropriations Committee has invited Members of Congress to request funding for projects in their communities. These requests are subject to strict transparency and accountability rules, which can be found here.
Projects are restricted to a limited number of federal funding streams, and only state and local governments and eligible non-profit entities are permitted to receive funding.
To ensure projects are a good use of taxpayer funds, the House Appropriations Committee has established a number of requirements. Projects must be “shovel ready” and meet any applicable federal matching requirements. Entities will be asked to include evidence of community support that served as compelling factors in the decision to submit project requests. This will include any letters of support, press articles, or relevant links to information online.
A submission is not a guarantee of funding. Each Representative may request funding for up to 15 projects in their community for fiscal year 2024 – although only a handful may actually be funded. Please carefully review the requirements and guidance for each account prior to your submission.
