WASHINGTON — Last Wednesday, Congressman David Trone (D-MD) announced that he had requested $3,940,381 in federal Community Project Funding for Garrett County.

“This sidewalk project will significantly enhance safety and provide better access to one of the most bustling parts of our community, an area along the National Road that has spanned the centuries and continues to be at the heart of our historical town,” said Emily Newman-Edwards, mayor of Grantsville. “The Town of Grantsville is so appreciative of Congressman Trone and his commitment to better the lives of the citizens in the furthest reaches of Western Maryland. Without his commitment to this project, it would not have come to fruition.”

For Fiscal Year (FY) 2025, members of the U.S. House of Representatives were allowed to request 15 projects. Congressman Trone’s projects represent an over 20% increase from FY 2024 funding. Every year since these projects were re-incorporated into the annual funding packages, all of the congressman’s requested projects were ultimately included and signed into law.

“I know how vital it is to work with folks on the ground to get the best results,” Congressman Trone said. “Over the past year, I’ve been working closely with state and community officials to identify projects that will have the greatest impact on our communities and support those most in need. In Congress, my priority is to provide our constituents with the tools they need to succeed. These community-driven investments will accomplish just that, fostering growth and revitalizing Maryland.”
