Congressman David Trone Announces Nearly $3 Million in Requested Community Project Funding for Allegany County

WASHINGTON, D.C. — Today, Congressman David Trone (MD-06) announced he successfully requested nearly $3 million for Allegany County in Fiscal Year (FY) 2024 Community Project Funding to the House Committee on Appropriations. This federal funding invests in Maryland’s health and safety, water infrastructure, economic development, and education. Next, the Committee will develop its final government funding package, taking Community Project Funding requests into consideration, and work to pass its proposed package into law.

“As a member of the House Appropriations Committee, my job is to ensure communities across the country are equipped to serve and provide vital resources to folks in need,” said Congressman David Trone. “Through Community Project Funding, Members of Congress get to hear straight from our local leaders about what federal funding is needed, creating a direct line of funding from Congress to our Main Streets. With this investment into Maryland’s Sixth District, we’re going to create more jobs, upgrade deteriorating infrastructure, and expand essential services. By partnering with the folks who know what investments need to be prioritized we’re building a brighter future for all Marylanders.”

The following Allegany County projects were successfully submitted to the House Committee on Appropriations. 

  • $2,000,000 for the Carver Center Renovation
  • $975,000 for the Good Will Fire Company No. 1 Engine-Tanker Replacement

“This $2 million in Community Project Funding will allow the Carver Center to serve Allegany County at full strength. These funds are crucial in re-establishing the Carver Center as a major asset within the City of Cumberland – containing programs that focus in areas from workforce training to childhood development,” said Cumberland Mayor Ray Morriss. “We thank Congressman Trone for getting the job done and delivering vital resources to Marylanders.”

“Thanks to Congressman Trone, the Good Will Fire Company will be able to better serve our community. With this Community Project Funding, we’ll replace our engine tanker, which is currently non-compliant with modern safety standards, to increase our fire-fighting capabilities,” said Good Will Volunteer Fire Chief Bobby Ritchie. “Without question, this funding will help keep our first responders and community safer.”

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, Budget, and Joint Economic Committees in the 118th 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.
