FY 2022 Appropriations Requests Overview
The Appropriations Community Project Funding request process opens up March 29th and there are deadlines in subcommittee/department jurisdiction between April 14th – 16th. CPF requests must be project-specific requests from government and nonprofit entities. Private sector requests do not qualify for CPFs.
The House Appropriations Committee for Fy2022 will be implementing Community Project Funding (CPF), a process previously known as appropriations earmarks. This will allow Members of Congress, greater input into funding decisions that will have a direct impact on their districts.
- This process will progress quickly. Members of Congress will be invited to submit their CPF requests beginning March 29 and the process will conclude mid-April;
- CPF requests must be project-specific requests from government and nonprofit entities. Unlike earmarks, private sector requests do not qualify for CPFs;
- Any underlying requirements (such as matching funds) for the corresponding appropriations account must be met:
- The Appropriations Committee will weigh heavily the amount of community support for the project; and
- There are no stated limits to the amount of funding available. HOWEVER, the Appropriations Committee has stated that past appropriations earmarks should be considered a rough guide for CPFs.
Congressional members are limited to 10 requests (programmatic and language) across all subcommittees so its key for interested parties to get in front of the correct Members of Congress now.
