Trone Supports Community Projects Across 6th District

GAITHERSBURG, MD — Last weekend, Congressman David Trone visited Montgomery County to meet with recipients of his requested Community Project Funding (CPF). Trone met with small business owners, medical professionals, and local leaders for tours of their facilities. Trone also met with U.S. Deputy Secretary of Housing and Urban Development Adrianne Todman and other experts during a housing summit.

“Over the past few months, we’ve been working with folks on the ground to get this funding to the communities who need it the most. I was glad to have state and local leaders by my side the whole way,” said Congressman Trone. “These community-driven investments are sure to provide our constituents with the resources they need to thrive. With these projects, we are creating jobs, bolstering our economy, and building a brighter future for Marylanders.”

On Friday, Trone began his district tour at Pleasant View Historic Site. This year, Trone requested nearly $1,000,000 in Community Project Funding to preserve and restore structures on the site, which served as a center of the African American community in Maryland for over 100 years. Later that day, Trone visited the Chinese Culture and Community Service Center (CCACC) in Gaithersburg to discuss the $1,250,000 in Community Project funding they requested for renovations and refurbishments of a health center.

Congressman Trone then spoke at the Affordable Housing Conference of Montgomery County’s (AHCMC) 31st Annual Housing Summit. Other speakers included U.S. Secretary of Housing and Urban Development Marcia L. Fudge, Deputy Secretary of Housing and Urban Development Adrianne Todman, and Congressman Jamie Raskin (MD-08).

On Saturday, Trone attended the 2022 Gaithersburg Book Festival with City Council Vice President Neil Harris and Councilmembers Jim McNulty and Robert Wu. The group spoke with visitors and stopped at each booth at the festival. Later, Congressman Trone joined Commissioner Jim Brown at Poolesville’s annual “Springfest” celebration, where he spoke to attendees. Commissioner Brown then briefed the Congressman on his CPF request and showed him areas that will benefit from the funding.

Congressman David Trone was elected to the House of Representatives in November 2018 to serve the 6th District of Maryland, which includes all or part of Montgomery, Frederick, Washington, Allegany, and Garrett Counties. Trone serves on the Appropriations, Veterans’ Affairs, and Joint Economic Committees in the 117th Congress. In Congress, Trone is fighting to make progress on issues that matter to Marylanders, including the mental health and addiction crises, criminal justice reform, and funding for medical research.
