Eligibility & Application Requirements

  • Only non-profit entities and state and local government entities are eligible to apply. All non-profit entities must provide evidence of their non-profit status as described under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code.
  • Each project must be for Fiscal Year (FY) 2022 only and cannot include multiyear funding. Since appropriations bills are annual, the funding will need to be spent one to two years from the enactment of the bill, so all projects must be considered “shovel-ready” and include evidence of community support (see community support requirements below).
  • Each funding request must include a project description, a budget breakdown including how funds will be utilized, and describe why the project should be publicly funded.
  • The deadline to apply for Community Project Funding is no later than close of business Monday, April 5th.


Community Support Requirements

Members must provide compelling evidence of community support for the project to demonstrate it is a genuine need. Examples of community support include but are not limited to:

  • Endorsement by elected officials and other organizations;
  • Press and support from newspaper editorial boards;
  • Listings on state intended use plans; and/or
  • Community development plans, or other publicly available planning documents or resolutions passed by city councils or boards.

​Please note: In some cases where funding needs to flow through the state administrating authority, state support letters will be required.

The deadline to submit supplemental support documents is no later than close of business Thursday, April 15th. Please note, CPF project requests must still be submitted ahead of the CPF support documents deadline by Monday, April 5th

Limited Approach

  • There is a ban on directing Community Project Funding to for-profit grantees. Members may only request funding for State or local governmental grantees and for eligible non-profits.
  • The Committee limits Community Project Funding to no more than 1% of discretionary spending.
  • Each Member of Congress is limited to 10 Community Project Funding requests.

Transparency & Accountability

  • Members are required to post every Community Project Funding request online. The website must be searchable, and the House Appropriations Committee will establish an online “one-stop” link to all project requests. Please note the information submitted in the forms below may be released to the public.
  • To facilitate public scrutiny of Community Project Funding, the Committee will release a list of projects funded the same day as the Subcommittee markup, or 24 hours before full committee consideration if there was no Subcommittee markup.
  • Members must certify to the Committee that they, their spouse, and their immediate family have no financial interest in the projects they request. This is an expansion beyond the underlying requirements in House Rules in order to cover immediate families of Members.
