Community Project Funding Requests

California’s 46th Congressional District is home to many cities, organizations, and institutions working on important projects that receive funding from the federal government. In order to be sure that I am hearing from my constituents, I have set up this page to solicit community funding project requests for Fiscal Year 2024. Please take the time to let me know more about your community funding project request, and how my office can be helpful to you.

Past Projects: (please link the FY22 and FY23 pages)

  • A list of the approved Fiscal Year 2022 projects for CA-46 can be found here.
  • A list of the approved Fiscal Year 2023 projects for CA-46 can be found here.

If you have any questions, please feel free to call my Washington, D.C. office at (202) 225-2965 and ask to speak to my legislative staff about your appropriations request or email

Please note:

  1. Due Date: Wednesday, March 15; 6pm Pacific Time
  2. Any information on the form could be public.
  3. Our office can only submit 15 requests in total.

  9. The House Committee on Appropriations will only approve CPF requests if there is a tie to a federal authorization law. 
  10. Three letters of support are required. The deadline for letters of support is March 20.
    1. Letters from elected officials and community groups, local transportation or community development plans, publications including news articles, and any other documents that demonstrate public support for the project.
