Community Project Submissions

For Fiscal Year 2022, the House Appropriations Committee is accepting limited requests for Community Projects.

Rep. Walberg is now accepting applications for suggested Community Projects to be funded in FY22. The Appropriations Committee has said they will only be able to fund a limited number of the projects submitted from Members of Congress. For more information, click here to download Rep. Walberg’s Community Project Funding Resource Guide.  

DEADLINE: COB Wednesday, April 14th

How to formulate your project request:

Your organization is able to submit one project request for the appropriations process using this form: FY22 Community Project Request Form. The deadline to submit project requests to Rep. Walberg’s office is COB Wednesday, April 14 by emailing the form(s) and all requested documentation to MI07.CommunityProjects@mail.house.gov.

The Appropriations Committee will give added weight to project requests that already have local, state or private funding and only need the remaining federal funds to fully complete the project or implement the program. It is recommended that you review the FY2010 appropriations tables as a guideline for funding levels – which can be found in the Conference Report for each bill. The Appropriations Committee has limited funding available for Community Projects.  

Examples of the types of Projects that are funded through the Appropriations Process:

Projects that are often funded include building a community center, senior center, recreation center or park, water infrastructure, transportation infrastructure, health care services, education programs, social services, police services or equipment, and other local government projects and programs.

For transparency, all Community Project funding requests made by Rep. Walberg will be posted on his website at the time the request is made to the Committee. The information posted will include:

  • the proposed recipient,
