Community Project Funding Requests

Congresswoman Dingell is accepting requests for proposals for Community Projects across the 12th District.

Attached you will find the designated forms to request community project funding by specific subcommittee accounts. Note that each Congressional office has an extremely limited number of project requests to submit so please prioritize projects for your community and please demonstrate strong community support for each request. We will not be able to submit all of the requests we receive, and ultimately the House Committee on Appropriations will determine which projects are funded.

Please see the checklist of required materials here and the forms for each subcommittee that are needed for our office to consider any request for FY22 Community Project Funding projects are below.
