To meet the needs of communities across the United States, the Appropriations Committee accepts Community Project Funding and Programmatic requests from Members of Congress.

Distinguishing Community Project Funding, Program, and Language Requests:

Community Project Funding (CPF) request: A funding request for a specific governmental or other eligible entity to carry out a specific community project. Example: Provide $500,000 for a specific entity in City, State. 

Programmatic request: A request to fund a specific program in the bill at a specified level. Example: Provide $200,000,000 for the ReConnect program.

Language request: A request to include specific bill or report language that does not direct funding to a particular entity but encourages, urges, or directs some type of action by an agency. Example: The Committee encourages USDA to study the impact of expanded broadband on rural 2 communities’ economic prosperity.
