Community Project Funding Requests

The House Appropriations Committee has announced that it will be accepting Community Project Funding (CPF) requests from Members for Fiscal Year 2025. Each Member is limited to no more than 15 Community Project Funding requests across all subcommittees, and there is no guarantee that requested projects will be funded.

Please note:

  • Congressman Beyer will NOT accept CPF requests for projects outside of VA-08.
  • All projects must meet the relevant statutory and administrative criteria for funding through the grant program under which it is submitted.
  • A request submitted to Congressman Beyer does NOT guarantee the project will be selected.
  • The selection of a project does NOT guarantee it will be funded by the Appropriations Committee.

Eligible Entities & Projects

Only state and local government entities and public institutions, and non-profit entities are eligible to submit and receive CPF funding. However, please note that non-profits are not eligible for Community Project Funding in the Transportation, Housing and Urban Development, and Related Agencies’ Economic Development Initiative (EDI) account. Funding cannot be directed to for-profit entities and requests must fulfill State or local match requirements. While matching funds do not have to be in-hand prior to the request, requesting entities must have a plan to meet such requirements for the project to be viable. Additionally, each submission must be for FY2025 only and cannot include multi-year funding requests.

The Committee will only consider projects with demonstrated community support in the form of: letters from local elected officials; press articles highlighting need; support from newspaper editorial boards; mentions on State intended use plans, community development plans, or other publicly available planning documents; resolutions passed by city councils or boards; etc.

Projects will only be considered for funding if they have a federal nexus. Examples of a federal nexus are provided by the committee guidance.

Please see the list of eligible accounts, and links to their guidance below.
