Deadline:  

The deadline to submit FY2025 Community Project Funding requests is April 19th, 2024.

Overview  

It is my great honor and privilege to serve as your representative in Congress and to ensure that federal dollars are being invested in El Paso. For Fiscal Year 2025, my office will be accepting Community Project Funding (CPF) requests. Since the start of Community Projects Funding in Fiscal Year 2022, I have been able to secure funding for 38 community projects, bringing back to El Paso nearly $55 million directly to our cities and towns, our schools, our universities, nonprofits, and companies. I am excited to continue to use this process to deliver for El Pasoans.

PLEASE NOTE: we have not received official guidance from the House Committee on Appropriations on FY25 CPFs. We expect it will be identical to the process last year - this means that Labor, Workforce and Training, Education, Healthcare, and Small Business entities are ineligible from receiving funds in the House in addition to other guidance from last year. Once we receive official guidance, we will update our website and contact those who have submitted projects for any additional information as needed.

The Community Project Funding requests are in addition to the general programmatic and language-based requests which you can learn more about here. Updated reforms require rigorous vetting, limits 15 community project requests from each Member of Congress, public disclosure of potential recipients on the Congressmember’s website, and certification that no Congressmember’s family can benefit from the project.

General CPF eligibility guidance:
  • Only state or local governmental entities and certain eligible non-profit organizations are eligible to apply.
  • All for-profit groups and entities are ineligible.
  • You must be able to demonstrate the the request has community support.
  • Funding must be for Fiscal Year 2025 only.
  • All projects must meet the relevant statutory and administrative criteria for funding through the grant program under which it is submitted.
  • If the project would normally require a funding match or cost share by a non-federal entity, then the requesting entity will need to demonstrate that it can provide this match if it makes a request.

Staff may follow up for additional information to support the CPF request such as budget justification, documentation of community support and need, or proof of ability to meet match requirements once an initial request is submitted. If you have any questions about Congresswoman Escobar’s project submission process, please email tx16.approps@mail.house.gov
