Congressman David Trone Announces Over $3 Million in Requested Community Project Funding for Montgomery County

WASHINGTON, D.C. — Today, Congressman David Trone (MD-06) announced he requested over $3 million for Montgomery County in Fiscal Year (FY) 2024 Community Project Funding to the House Committee on Appropriations. Community Project Funding is dedicated federal funding going toward specific local projects with a clear, documented benefit to communities. 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 Montgomery County project was successfully submitted to the House Committee on Appropriations.  

  • $3,262,500 for the Russell Avenue Multimodal and Streetscape Improvement Project

“The City of Gaithersburg is honored that the Russell Avenue Multimodal and Streetscape Improvement is included in Congressman Trone’s FY24 appropriations requests,” said City of Gaithersburg Mayor Jud Ashman. “Funding this project will allow the City to convert Russell Avenue from a car-centric, wide road to a pedestrian-friendly corridor. This will improve traffic flow and make Russell Avenue safer for City and County residents. I appreciate the efforts of our City Council and staff to get us to this place, and I am equally appreciative of Congressman Trone’s support for this important investment in the City of Gaithersburg.”

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.
