To meet urgent needs 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.
Members were invited to submit projects to the Appropriations Committee as a first step in the appropriations process. After receiving submissions from Members, the Committee carefully reviewed them for inclusion in fiscal year 2022 appropriations bills. The following lists provide information on the Community Project Funding requests that were funded by each Subcommittee.
- Agriculture, Rural Development, Food and Drug Administration, and Related Agencies (reflects Manager's Amendment)
- Commerce, Justice, Science, and Related Agencies
- Energy and Water Development, and Related Agencies (in addition to Community Project Funding requests, amounts included in this table reflect funding requested in the President's budget for funded projects)
- Financial Services and General Government
- Homeland Security (reflects Manager's Amendment)
- Interior, Environment, and Related Agencies
- Labor, Health and Human Services, Education, and Related Agencies (reflects Manager's Amendment)
- Military Construction, Veterans Affairs, and Related Agencies
- Transportation, and Housing and Urban Development, and Related Agencies (reflects Manager's Amendment)
The deadline for Members of Congress to submit requests for Community Project Funding was April 30, with a supplementary period between May 20 and June 4 to allow for additional requests and changes to existing requests after project lists included in President Biden’s budget were released. Information about what accounts were eligible for Community Project Funding and the requirements for each one is available here.
All requests are submitted to the Appropriations Committee as a first step in the appropriations process. The Committee will carefully review requests as it develops fiscal year 2022 appropriations bills. Only a handful of each Member's requests may be funded. Information about Community Project Funding requests funded in appropriations bills will be available the same day as the Subcommittee markup, or 24 hours before full committee consideration if there was no Subcommittee markup.
Members are required to post every Community Project Funding request on their official House website simultaneously with their submission to the Committee. To ensure that requests from all Members are easily accessible, the Appropriations Committee has established this online “one-stop” link to all House members’ project requests.
To further support transparency, the Committee is also providing a link to a consolidated table of accessible data, so that the public can directly view all Community Project Funding requests submitted to the Committee. The table reflects the data as submitted by offices into the database maintained by the Appropriations Committee. Questions regarding information in the table should be directed to the office that made the request. The table, updated to reflect additional submissions and changes to existing submissions made following the release of the President's budget, submissions from newly-elected Members, and technical corrections, is available here.
In alphabetical order, websites for each Member’s requests are below:
