Norton Announces Selections for Community Project Funding Requests

Apr 26, 2021
Press Release
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congresswoman Eleanor Holmes Norton (D-DC) today announced the community project funding requests that she submitted for the fiscal year 2022 appropriations bills. Members were allowed to submit up to 10 requests. Norton received a total of 80 requests and submitted 10. Norton said she regrets that she could not submit many worthy requests.
The House Appropriations Committee established very narrow eligibility criteria for the projects, and unfortunately, many of the proposals Norton received did not meet the criteria. Norton will learn which requests, if any, may receive funding when the committee releases the appropriations bills. For a project to receive funding, the funding must be included in the version of the appropriations bill that is passed by the House and Senate and signed into law.
