FY 2022 Appropriations Update
Each year, the United States Congress has a constitutional obligation to debate and pass several pieces of legislation, known as annual appropriation bills, which fund the operations of the federal government and maintain services for the American public. These bills fund every aspect of our government, ranging from our military to student loan programs to disease research and prevention.
As we begin the Fiscal Year 2022 funding cycle, I have an opportunity to submit “programmatic requests” on behalf of local organizations that want to impact the overall funding levels of important national programs. For example, I can submit a request on behalf of a local fire department to increase funding for the Assistance to Firefighters Grant Program in order to improve the department’s chances of receiving a grant in the future. We also have a new opportunity to recommend Community Project Funding Requests, for a very limited number of specific projects. I believe that submitting programmatic and possible project requests is an important part of my responsibility to bring tax dollars back to the Seventh Congressional District. These dollars are funding critical afterschool activities, job training programs, police and fire departments, and countless other community focused organizations and initiatives. I will seriously consider all requests received.
This year’s deadline to submit an appropriations programmatic or project request has passed.
