Congressman John Yarmuth

Representing the 3rd Congressional District of Kentucky

FY22 Community Project Funding Submissions

Rep. Yarmuth has submitted funding requests for important community projects in Kentucky's Third Congressional District to the House Appropriations Committee.

Under guidelines issued by the Appropriations Committee, each Representative may request funding for up to 10 projects in their community for fiscal year 2022 – although only a handful may actually be funded. Projects are restricted to a limited number of federal funding streams, and only state and local governments and eligible non-profit entities are permitted to receive funding. Additional information on the reforms governing Community Project Funding is available here.

In compliance with House Rules and Committee requirements, Rep. Yarmuth has certified that he, his spouse, and his immediate family have no financial interest in any of the projects he has requested.
