If you would like to submit traditional programmatic and language requests for Fiscal Year (FY) 2024, please do so using our FY 2024 Appropriations Form by Monday, March 13, 2023.
If you have multiple requests, please submit them separately.
Community Project Funding (CPF) Requests
For FY 2024, the House Appropriations Committee will again accept limited requests for Community Project Funding (CPF) to direct funding to specific governmental entities and nonprofit organizations.
Only public entities, such as state and local governments, and certain 501(c)(3) nonprofits are eligible Community Project Funding recipients. For-profit entities are not eligible for CPF funding. Some accounts have additional restrictions on eligible recipients.
Each Representative can submit a maximum of 15 requests total for FY 2024, and the final decision as to whether CPF requests will be fulfilled will be made by the House Appropriations Committee. Unfortunately, that means that many eligible and deserving projects will not receive Community Project Funding in the FY 2024 appropriations cycle.
The House Appropriations Committee made significant changes to the Community Project Funding process for FY 2024, including changes to the eligible accounts. Applicants should carefully review both the overall guidance from the House Appropriations Committee and all requirements and application questions for each account (included in our application form linked below).
FY 2024 CPF requests are limited to specific eligible accounts, within the following Appropriations Subcommittees: Agriculture; Commerce, Justice, Science; Energy & Water; Homeland Security; Interior & Environment; Military Construction & Veterans Affairs; and Transportation & Housing and Urban Development.
For FY 2024, Representatives will NOT be able to submit CPF requests to the following Subcommittees: Defense; Financial Services & General Government; Labor, Health and Human Services; Legislative Branch; and State and Foreign Operations Subcommittees.

Please contact MD08.Appropriations@mail.house.gov with any questions.
Our final FY 2024 Community Project Funding requests will be fully transparent to the public. Each Member of Congress is required to post on their website the 15 CPF requests they submit to the Appropriations Committee. Therefore, all information submitted by a requesting organization should be considered public information.
CPF requests must meet all the guidelines established by the Appropriations Committee and the specific requirements identified for the relevant account, which are laid out in detail in our FY 2024 CPF form linked above. The Appropriations Committee’s overall guidance is available here and summarized below:
- The request must be for FY 2024 funds only and cannot include requests for multiyear funding.
- If the project would normally require a funding match or cost share by a non-federal entity, then the applicant will need to demonstrate that it can provide this match.
- The applicant must be able to demonstrate that the request has community support. This requirement is integral for a successful CPF request. Examples of community support include but are not limited to: support letters from elected community officials, press articles, editorial boards, state-intended use plans or community development plans, or municipal resolutions of support.
- Memorials, museums, and commemoratives (i.e., projects named for an individual or entity) are not eligible for Community Project Funding in FY 2024.
- The project or requesting entity must have no financial ties to the Member or their family.
You may review our Community Project Funding requests from FY 2022 and FY 2023 here – however, please note that eligible accounts and other requirements have changed significantly for FY 2024.
