WASHINGTON – Congresswoman Debbie Dingell (MI-12) today announced the FY2023 omnibus appropriations package includes $36,447,419 for 15 community projects throughout Michigan’s 12th Congressional District. Dingell’s community project funding will directly invest in efforts to protect the environment, develop and distribute clean energy, increase access to affordable housing and health care, and support workforce development.
