Press Release

WASHINGTON, DC – Today, U.S. Representative Angie Craig announced that the House Appropriations Committee has approved all ten of the Community Project Funding submissions for Minnesota’s Second Congressional District – advancing more than $16 million for projects in communities across Southeastern Minnesota. In the coming weeks, the full House of Representatives is expected to vote on appropriations packages that will include these projects.

Below is a list of the projects approved in legislation by the House Appropriations Committee: 

“Securing federal funding for infrastructure projects in the Second District has been a top priority of mine as we look to create jobs and rebuild our local economy,” said Representative Craig. “I’m so pleased to announce that all ten of my submissions to the House Appropriations Committee have been approved for funding and I look forward to getting these investments over the finish line in the full House of Representatives.” 

Craig submitted her requests for Community Project Funding (CPF) for the Fiscal Year 2022 Appropriations process, through which Members of Congress are able to request funding for up to 10 specific projects in their districts which would serve the public good and be a good use of taxpayer dollars. 

The House Appropriations Committee approved funds for community projects on a limited basis in the FY22 Appropriations legislation. The CPF requests that address the most significant needs of local communities or provide a significant public good were more likely to be included. The new CPF program is being implemented with accountability measures to ensure a responsible and transparent process.
