Community Project Funding

Community engagement and support is crucial in determining which projects are worthy of Federal funding. Only projects with demonstrated community support will be considered and our office will be required to present to the Appropriations Committee evidence of community support that were compelling factors in our decision to submit the request. Examples of these include, but are not limited to:

  • Letters of support from elected community leaders (e.g. mayors or other officials);

  • Press articles highlighting the need for the requested Community Project Funding;

  • Support from newspaper editorial boards;

  • Projects listed on State intended use plans, community development plans, or other publicly available planning documents; or

  • Resolutions passed by city councils or boards.

Please note that only the below accounts are eligible for CPF requests so please review the criteria when determining whether or not your project can be funded. Each project request must be for Fiscal Year 2022 funds only and cannot include a request for multi year funding.
