FY24 Community Project Funding

The Community Project Funding (CPF) process allows Members of Congress to direct spending to projects in their communities that are high priority and broadly supported. This ensures that the people’s federal representatives can target spending to where it is most needed, instead of leaving the decision entirely up to the federal bureaucracy. 


For fiscal year 2024 (FY24), Members of the House of Representatives were permitted to submit a maximum of fifteen (15) projects to the House Appropriations Committee for consideration. All projects were vetted and those that were selected will be overseen to make sure that taxpayer dollars are spent properly.
