Beyer Submits Community Project Funding Requests To Support Northern Virginia Infrastructure, Policing Reform, Health Care
Rep. Don Beyer (D-VA), who represents the Northern Virginia suburbs of the nation’s capital, today announced his submissions on behalf of Virginia’s 8th Congressional District requesting federal funds from the Fiscal Year 2022 Community Project Funding Program, which will provide targeted funding for local projects across the country.
“The Community Project Funding requests I submitted on behalf of Arlington, Alexandria, Falls Church, and Fairfax all support local initiatives which would significantly benefit our community,” said Beyer. “The infrastructure requests would enhance pedestrian routes in the region, support EV’s and other environmentally friendly initiatives, fund mental health resources, and support a pilot program for the deployment of body-worn cameras for the Alexandria Police Department. My requests also include funding to help implement some of the recommendations made by the National Park Service safety study for GW Parkway which was recently completed. These are worthy projects deserving of federal funding.”
New rules adopted by the House of Representatives in the 117th Congress allow each Representative to submit funding requests for up to 10 projects within their district for FY22, without any guarantee of approval. Project requests must fall within a limited scope of federal accounts and direct funds to state and local government and select non-profits, and each Member must certify that they and their family have no financial interest in any project for which they request funding.
Beyer’s CPF requests follow below, with full details including accounts, disclosures, and Beyer’s letters to House Appropriations Committee explaining the requests available here.
