At this time, our office is no longer accepting completed interest forms as they were due by Friday, April 9, 2021 at 5:00 PM to be eligible for consideration.

Thank you for visiting the webpage of Representative Andy Barr. For Fiscal Year 2022 the House Committee on Appropriations will be accepting Community Project Funding (CPF) Requests from Members in addition to the annual programmatic and language-based requests. Please see below for official CPF standard request procedures. Please review the information below thoroughly before proceeding with a request.

The Community Project Funding request process is a new program that varies greatly from the traditional “earmark” system. Details about the process are still being released, and the timeline for compiling and submitting Community Project Funding requests is very short. Stringent measures are in place to provide additional transparency, ensure Members and their families do not have a financial interest in any project, and to emphasize community supported projects. A sample of funding awards will be audited after awarding by the Government Accountability Office (GAO).

  • Each Member is permitted to make up to 10 requests. There is no guarantee that any request will be funded.
  • We ask that you review the Community Project Funding Guidelines before completing Representative Barr’s Community Project Funding Interest Form and submitting it back to our office.
  • You can access the Guidelines for the FY2022 Community Project Funding Member Request Process here.
  • Eligibility: Only governmental entities and organizations are eligible for funding. For-Profit entities are excluded from FY2022 Community Project Funding requests due to U.S. House Appropriations Committee guidance. In addition, while Not-For-Profits are technically eligible for Community Project Funding, neither the U.S. House Appropriations nor Ethics Committees have yet defined the various conflict of interest rules that must be followed. Therefore, Representative Barr will not at this time be considering Community Project Funding requests until those rules are finalized.
  • All requests must be made public.
  • Programs eligible for Community Project Funding must come from Approved Accounts, found at this link, Appropriations Requests | House Committee on Appropriations.

If you have reviewed the FY2022 Community Project Funding Member Request Guidelines and believe your project meets the eligibility requirements and falls into an approved account, please complete the attached Community Project Funding Interest Form. Our office must receive a completed interest form by Friday, April 9, 2021 at 5:00 PM to be eligible for consideration.

Please note that the newly created FY22 Community Project Funding is separate from annual appropriations programmatic and language requests. Groups seeking support for programs through the annual regular appropriations process should submit a separate request.

Additionally, while the Appropriations Committee deadlines have been extended to the end of April, the office of Congressman Barr must receive requests by 5pm on Friday, April 9th to allow for proper review and follow up. Please feel free to follow up with our office regarding any questions, concerns, or comments.
