Community Project Funding

Each year, the United States Congress considers and enacts annual appropriations bills that provide the federal government with the funding it needs to operate. These appropriations bills fund a wide range of federal government operations, including medical research, clean air and water programs, and national defense. As a member of the House Appropriations Committee since 2013, I’m proud to fight for federal assistance to support communities across Maine.

Community Project Funding (CPF) is a critical tool to directly enrich our communities and a vital instrument that has facilitated member-to-member cooperation between the parties for decades. By giving all members an equal stake in the success of legislation for our constituents, the reintroduction of Community Project Funding will make Congress work better and heal the widening partisan divisions that threaten our democratic process.

We are still awaiting guidance from the Appropriations Committee on Fiscal Year 2025 and will update this page when more information becomes available. In the meantime, you’re welcome to reach out to my office if you would like to discuss a project idea or be notified once our application process is open.

While we cannot guarantee that the same requirements will be in place for Fiscal Year 2025, we encourage you to review helpful materials from the Fiscal Year 2024 process, including:
