Appropriations Requests

I want to ensure that the federal government invests in the policies and programs that help move our communities, state, and country forward. That’s why it’s important I hear directly from you about what our federal budget should prioritize.

Since my first day in office, I have been committed to bettering the lives of everyone in Iowa’s Third Congressional District – and that’s precisely what supporting community investments through the congressional appropriations process will do. Our team is excited to hear your recommendations for projects that fit our criteria by: meeting a clear and present need in the community, being administered by local government or eligible nonprofit organizations, and enjoying significant support from community stakeholders.

Community Project Funding Requests

This year the House Appropriations Committee announced a new Community Project Funding initiative to allow Members of Congress to target federal funds towards projects and programs that will address the most significant needs facing the communities they represent.

Only state, local, and tribal governments; publicly owned entities (e.g. universities); and certain non-profit entities with a quasi-government purpose are eligible to request Community Project Funding.

For more information, check out my Community Project Funding Resource Guide.

The deadline to submit requests was April 16, 2021.
