Jayapal Requests $53 million for Seattle-Based Projects

WASHINGTON – U.S. Representative Pramila Jayapal (WA-07) announced she submitted requests for funding for 15 community-based projects in her district. The funding requests total more than $53 million across all 15 projects. These projects span various areas, including housing, arts, sciences, education, the environment, and services for historically underserved communities, including young adults, Black, Brown, Indigenous, and people of color. 

“Addressing the needs of my community and improving access to services is one of the greatest honors I have as a member of Congress,” said Congresswoman Jayapal. “This year, it is my pleasure and privilege to seek funding for these 15 programs, which will undoubtedly provide transformative change for the people they seek to help. Expanding access to affordable housing, arts, science, education, and community services is deeply necessary to enrich our lives. I remain committed to ensuring that everyone in my district has access to such opportunities. These projects will help advance essential services for my constituents.”
