Apply for an Earmark

Opportunity for Federal Funding for Local Projects

The US House Appropriations Committee and the US Senate Appropriations Committee have released new guidance regarding “Community Project Funding” (CPF) and “Congressionally Directed Spending” (CDS) requests, also known as earmarks, for Fiscal Year 2024. Through these funding requests, organizations can apply for funding for local projects directly through their elected official’s office that allows for members of Congress to allocate specific funds to projects in their districts or states through the appropriations process.

There have been changes made to these requests and it’s important that you are aware of the new changes, deadlines for requests, and what is needed for a successful application. To assist with this process, NALCAB has released a short video with detailed information about how to access funds.
