Community Project Funding and Transportation and Infrastructure Projects Requests

This year, the House Appropriations Committee has provided each Member of Congress with the opportunity to submit up to ten community projects for possible inclusion in the FY22 Appropriations Bills.

The T&I Committee process for considering member projects is separate from the House Committee on Appropriations’ process for considering Community Project Funding requests. Projects funded through the surface transportation authorization will be funded directly from the Highway Trust Fund, and they do not require a separate or subsequent appropriation.

All Transportation and Infrastructure projects nominated by Congresswoman Stefanik to the T&I Committee are listed below.
