FY23 Community Project Funding

Fact Sheet: FY2023 House of Representatives Appropriations Community Project Funding 

Fast Facts 

- Community Project Funding (CPF) is an initiative for Fiscal Year 2023 that will allow Members of Congress to request targeted, and direct funding for specific projects that benefit the communities they represent. CPF is separate from federal grants and funding apportioned by formula. To learn more about this program visit:
https://appropriations.house.gov/transparency/fiscal-year-2023

- For FY 2023, CPF is available from 48 accounts across 10 different appropriations bills. Each of these appropriations bills are managed by a subcommittee of the House Committee on Appropriations. A listing of eligible accounts, along with links to in-depth information on eligibility requirements and allowable uses, may be found below.

- The range of sizes for similar awards has historically been between a few thousand dollars and several million dollars. FY2023 award amounts have not been established. 

- Each Member of Congress will establish their own method for receiving CPF funding requests and evaluating them. 

- Members of Congress may submit only 15 projects across all appropriations bills and accounts. 

Transparency & Ethics 

This initiative is coupled with stringent eligibility, ethics, and transparency guardrails. These include: 

- Each Member of Congress is required to post their requested earmarks on their official websites for transparency purposes, in addition to their regular appropriations requests. 

- Each Member of Congress is required to certify that they or their immediate family have no financial interest in the projects they are submitting.

- FY2023 CPF will be available only to nonprofit organizations and to state, local, tribal, and territorial governments
