WASHINGTON, DC — Today, Representative Adriano Espaillat (NY-13), a member of the powerful House Appropriations Committee, which funds federal agencies and programs—announced the start of a new cycle of community project funding for state and local entities to receive direct federal funding through the Appropriations process.  

Community Project Funding allows Members of Congress to direct congressional funding to their districts to help address the needs of the community. This funding is critical to helping support the administrative and operational functions of eligible groups in the district. 

Eligible entities that can apply for funding include state or local governmental entities and certain eligible non-profit organizations.  All for-profit groups and entities are ineligible.  Eligible projects are broken down by each spending bill.

Espaillat. “Each year, this process assists my office in identifying local projects from around my district which need federal funding and support in order to continue their work to assist constituents. I look forward to collaborating with each of the local groups to help identify projects and next steps to ensure this process and funding opportunity is available to all eligible organizations throughout my district.”
