Congressman David Trone (MD-06) wrapped up the last week of the 117th Congress by delivering a historic investment in mental health and addiction to the American people, securing over $30 million in Community Project Funding for Maryland’s Sixth District, and getting 11 of his bills signed into law.
As a member of the House Appropriations Committee, Rep. Trone was able to secure over $30 million in Community Project Funding for Maryland’s Sixth District through the FY23 omnibus funding deal. These investments will create new jobs, deliver much-needed resources to Sixth District communities, and restore neglected infrastructure, including:
- $4,800,000 for the repair of the Fayette Street Bridge on behalf of the City of Cumberland
- $698,848 for the purchase of equipment for the Garrett County Government
- $650,000 to purchase a new electronic health record system for the Garrett Regional Medical Center
- $531,718 for the construction of a new childcare center for the City of Frostburg
