Landsman Announces Opening of Federal Community Project Funding Process

Cincinnati, OH – Today, Congressman Greg Landsman (OH-01) announced the opening of his federal Community Project Funding process for Ohio’s First Congressional District.

Each year, Members of Congress can submit up to 15 local, community-led projects to the House Appropriations Committee for consideration to receive specialized federal funding through the appropriations bills that Congress passes annually to fund the federal government. 

Previously known as earmarks, the Community Project Funding process allows Members of Congress to work closely with community partners – including local and state governmental entities and certain non-profit entities – to identify projects of regional importance and deploy significant federal funding that will benefit the community as a whole.

Congressman Landsman will receive Community Project Funding applications and then select 15 projects to submit to the House Appropriations Committee to be considered. While the 15 projects Congressman Landsman submits to the House Appropriations Committee are not guaranteed to receive Community Project Funding, he will work with community partners in a transparent and bipartisan manner to submit projects that have the greatest likelihood of being approved by the House Appropriations Committee for Community Project Funding.

Projects eligible for Community Project Funding include, but are not limited to:

  • Infrastructure projects such as roads, transit, rail, broadband, and water systems
  • Public safety projects
  • Rural and agricultural projects
  • Community development projects

“As part of our commitment to being a new kind of national leader, one who is fully transparent, accountable, bipartisan, and highly reliable – we are excited to kick off our Community Project Funding process to deliver critical federal investments in Southwest Ohio,” said Congressman Landsman. “The 15 projects we select will have broad community support and deep, long-lasting impacts across Hamilton and Warren Counties – and we encourage everyone to apply.”

The deadline to submit Community Project Funding applications is Friday, March 17 at 5:00pm.

All details, instructions, and application forms can be found on Congressman Landsman’s website at Landsman.House.gov/community-project-funding.
