Community Project Funding

Our office is now accepting requests for Community Project Funding (CPF) for the Fiscal Year 2022 (FY22) Appropriations process to direct funding to specific governmental entities, nonprofit organizations or geographic locations. Community Project Funding will allow Congress to fund the projects that will make a real difference in the lives of Central Floridians. Through the new CPF program, Members of Congress will be able to request funding for up to 10 specific projects in their districts to serve the public good. The deadline for submitting CPF requests for Florida’s 9th Congressional District is Friday, April 2, 2021, at 5:00 PM ET.
