About the Fiscal Year 2022 Community Projects Request Process
This form is to submit a request for Community Project Funding for projects and activities that have a direct impact on New Jersey's 11th Congressional District. (You can verify your Congressional District here.)
Please read the eligibility criteria and selection guidance carefully before submitting a request.
Submission of this information does not create a binding commitment on any party nor a guarantee that any organization or program will be awarded funding from any federal agency. Once submitted, this request may be made publicly available.
Eligibility Criteria - Only the following entities may apply for funding under the Community-Focused Grant Program:
- State, local and tribal governments
- Publicly owned entities (e.g. ports, universities, PUDs, etc.)
- Certain non-profit entities (e.g. Special Districts)
If you have questions about whether your organization is eligible to apply, please contact our office at (202) 225-5034 or by email at RepSherrillAppropriations@mail.house.gov for further assistance before submitting a request.
Selection Guidance - Based on guidance from the Appropriations Committee, each Member of Congress may only submit 10 requests for Community Project Funding. As a result, Rep. Sherrill is working with local stakeholders to help inform the selection process and will give particular consideration to requests that have strong community support, capture the geographic and demographic makeup of the district, and achieve at least one of following goals:
- Create sustained job growth and/or economic opportunity
- Address imminent threats to public health, safety or the environment
- Promote equity and inclusion for underserved populations
- Fulfill unmet federal obligations
All Community Project funding requests should be submitted by April 5, 2021, however this deadline is subject to change if guidance from the House Appropriations Committee is updated.
Please email any additional supporting documents to RepSherrillAppropriations@mail.house.gov
Examples of these include, but are not limited to:
- Letters of support from elected community leaders (e.g. mayors or other officials);
- Press articles highlighting the need for the requested Community Project Funding;
- Support from newspaper editorial boards;
- Projects listed on State intended use plans, community development plans, or other publicly available planning documents; or
