Appropriations Requests

Our office accepted appropriations submissions from the public during April 2021 for changes to existing federal programs (programmatic requests) and directions for administrative action (report language requests) for the Fiscal Year 2022 (FY22) Congressional appropriations process.  In addition, the House Appropriations Committee made available the opportunity for Congressmembers to make Community Project Funding (CPF) requests.  Members of Congress, for the first time in over a decade, can make a request for direct funding to projects in their districts, though the Committee placed a strict limit of 10 on the number of CPF requests per Member.  Our office accepted those public submissions as well.  

Community Project Funding (CPF) is an updated and more transparent version of a former practice known as earmarks, which was ended in 2010.  Any CPF requests Rep. Bass makes must be consistent with the House Appropriations Committee’s announcement. State and local governments and certain 501(c)3 non-profit organizations were eligible for this federal funding. Additional eligibility and application requirements are outlined in the community project funding request page on the House Appropriations Committee site available here. The CA37 deadline for all requests from the public was April 16, 2021.

Community Project Funding (CPF) requests also require public disclosure to assure transparency in the use of taxpayer dollars.  Below you will find the projects being submitted by Rep. Karen Bass for Fiscal Year 2022.
