Community Project Funding Requests

Community Project Funding Requests

Rep. Meeks has submitted funding requests for important community projects in NY-05 to the House Appropriations Committee.

Under guidelines issued by the Appropriations Committee, each Representative may request funding for up to 10 projects in their community for fiscal year 2022 – although only a handful may actually be funded. Projects are restricted to a limited number of federal funding streams, and only state and local governments and eligible non-profit entities are permitted to receive funding. Additional information on the reforms governing Community Project Funding is available here.

In compliance with House Rules and Committee requirements, Rep. Meeks has certified that he, his spouse, and his immediate family have no financial interest in any of the projects he has requested.

For an explanation of the requests, including the purpose and a description for why these projects are a valuable use of taxpayer funds, please refer to my letter addressed to the House Appropriations Committee. All projects are listed by alphabetical order of the sponsored entities. PDF iconMeeks FY22 CPF Letter.pdf
