Congressman Joe Neguse Announces Application for Community Project Funding for FY23

Washington, D.C.—Today, Congressman Joe Neguse announced that his office is now accepting applications for federal funding to be allocated to community projects for the fiscal year of 2023. Through the Community Project Funding (CPF) program, Members of Congress are able to request funding for up to 15 community projects within their district to receive federal funds. 

“The people throughout our communities have an innate knowledge of what they need and what their priorities are and I am honored to get another chance to push for these critical community projects through our district and look forward to reviewing this year’s applications.” said Congressman Joe Neguse. 

The CPF program is implemented alongside accountability measures to ensure a responsible and transparent process.  All CPFmember submissions are required to be posted on neguse.house.gov in order to ensure full transparency.  Therefore, all information submitted by a requesting organization should be considered public information.  The House Appropriations Committee will also establish an online, searchable public database of all CPF requests received by the Committee.

The House Appropriations Committee intends to fund community projects on a limited basis in the FY23 Appropriations bills.  Therefore, CPF requests that address the most significant needs of local communities or provide a significant public good are more likely to be included.  Not every CPF request submitted by a Member of Congress will be included in the FY23 appropriations bills. To submit a request and for more information please visit here.

To apply, complete the FY2023 Community Funding Project Request Form and send supplemental documents in one email to Neguse.Appropriations@mail.house.gov. Please include your entity’s name and account you are requesting in the subject line.
