Congressman Tim Ryan Office is Accepting FY22 Appropriations Requests, including Community Project Funding
Washington, DC – Congressman Tim Ryan (OH-13), member of the House Appropriations Committee, today announced that his office is now accepting Fiscal Year 2022 (FY22) Appropriations requests, including requests for Community Project Funding (CPF). Community Project Funding requests direct funding to specific governmental entities or nonprofit organizations. 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 submission of requests for OH-13 is Wednesday, April 7, 2021 at 5:00 PM. Late or incomplete requests will not be accepted or considered.
“I’ve spent my career fighting to ensure our community gets the funding we need, and I’m excited to continue that track record. This particular process is a great opportunity to bring investment to Northeast Ohio in a transparent manner so taxpayers get a say in how their money is spent,” said Congressman Tim Ryan. “I look forward to hearing from the people of our district on the important projects that will continue to revitalize Northeast Ohio and help us win the economy of the future.”
The new CPF program is being implemented with accountability measures to ensure a responsible and transparent process. All CPF submissions are required to be posted on timryan.house.gov in order to ensure full transparency. Therefore, all information submitted by a requesting organization should be considered public information. The House Appropriations Committee will also establish an online, searchable public database of all CPF requests received by the Committee.
The House Appropriations Committee intends to fund community projects on a limited basis in the FY22 Appropriations bills. Therefore, CPF requests that address the most significant needs of local communities or provide a significant public good are more likely to be included. Not every CPF request submitted by a Member of Congress will be included in the FY22 appropriations bills.
Only eligible CPF requests that meet all the guidelines established by the Appropriations Committee will be accepted and considered. Visit Congressman Ryan’s website to learn more and submit a request.
