Appropriations Requests

To make the federal funding process more responsive to the needs of the American people, the U.S. House Appropriations Committee will again accept requests from Members of Congress for Community Project Funding to support specific, worthwhile projects in the districts they represent.

As a senior member of the House Committee on Appropriations, U.S. Representative Matt Cartwright is committed to bringing our region's fair share of federal dollars back to Northeastern Pennsylvania. In Fiscal Year 2023, Rep. Cartwright successfully secured $52.7 million for all 15 projects he submitted to the Appropriations Committee, ranking Number One in Pennsylvania and Top Ten in the country for securing Community Project Funding dollars for Pennsylvania's Eighth Congressional District. This federal funding directly responds to the region's most pressing needs by creating jobs with better pay, making us safer, and strengthening our communities.

Our office is now accepting applications for FY24 projects from Northeastern Pennsylvania state and local government entities, as well as 501(c)(3) non-profit organizations.
