Community Project Funding Transparency
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 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 Requests submitted to the Committee. This table will show the same information that is required to be posted on the Member’s website, and it is an effort to display all of the requests in one place in a more accessible format for the public. The consolidated table will be available after all of the Subcommittee deadlines have closed, and a link is expected to be posted the week of May 3.
The deadline for Members of Congress to submit requests for Community Project Funding was April 30. Given the timing of the full budget request this year, a handful of additional requests may be posted in May or June after project lists included in President Biden’s budget are known.
All requests are submitted to the Appropriations Committee as a first step in the appropriations process. The Committee will carefully review requests as we develop 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.
In alphabetical order, websites for each Member’s requests are below:
