Rep. Cartwright announces list of FY25 Community Project Funding submissions


U.S. Rep. Matt Cartwright, D-Moosic, a senior member of the House Appropriations Committee and Ranking Member of the Commerce, Justice and Science Appropriations Subcommittee, this week announced he has submitted 15 Community Project Funding requests to the House Appropriations Committee for funding consideration ahead of the fiscal year 2025 congressional appropriations process.

All five counties in Pennsylvania’s 8th Congressional District are represented in Cartwright’s selections.

“As a Member of Congress, one of my top priorities is to deliver federal tax dollars back to the people I serve,” Cartwright said. “In the three years since Community Project Funding was reintroduced, I’ve successfully brought home more than $87 million in Community Project Funding dollars for Northeastern Pennsylvania. These projects will make a real difference in our district by strengthening infrastructure, creating good-paying jobs, supporting public safety, and boosting economic development.”

In 2021, the House adopted a submissions process for Community Project Funding (CPF) requests by individual Members for specific projects that will benefit the communities they represent.

Since then, Cartwright has secured funding for every single project he has submitted to Appropriations.

In Fiscal Year 2022, he successfully secured $19.6 million for his district; in Fiscal Year 2023, he brought home another $52.7 million; and in Fiscal Year 2024, he procured $15.35 million.
