As a member of the House Appropriations Committee, I want to ensure that the federal government invests in the policies and programs that help move our communities, state, and country forward. That’s why it’s important I hear directly from you about what our federal budget should prioritize.
Community Project Funding Requests
Last Congress, the House Appropriations Committee announced a new Community Project Funding initiative to allow Members of Congress to target federal funds towards projects and programs that will address the most significant needs facing the communities they represent. Only state, local, and tribal governments; publicly owned entities (e.g. ports, universities, PUDs, etc.); and eligible non-profits are permitted to request Community Project Funding.
In Fiscal Year 2023, Members were allowed to submit fifteen requests on behalf of their districts. All fifteen of my requests were included in the final Fiscal Year 2023 omnibus spending bill, totaling $30,263,409 in project funding for Maryland’s Sixth District. To see which programs were successful in Fiscal Year 2023, please see my Community Project Funding page here.
Below you will find a resource guide outlining how to request Community Project Funding through the annual appropriations process. This guide is an effort to streamline the process and provide you with the best information available in a clear and concise format. My team and I are committed to creating a fair and equitable process that will benefit Maryland’s Sixth Congressional District.
Our FY 2024 Application can be found here.
The House Appropriations Committee released its official guidance on February 28.

Programmatic & Language Requests
Each year, the United States Congress considers and enacts annual appropriations bills, which provide the federal government with the funding it needs to operate. These bills fund numerous activities, including government operations, medical research, national defense, infrastructure, and education.
You or your organization may submit programmatic or language requests for Fiscal Year 2024. Programmatic requests include funding for specific federal programs that are important to you or your organization. Language requests include specific policy directives to federal agencies.
As of Friday, March 17, 2023, our FY24 programmatic/language request form is now closed. Given the internal deadlines to the House Appropriations Committee, we are not able to accommodate any late requests or meetings. If you have questions about the FY 2024 appropriations process, please contact the office at 202-225-2721.
