Jayapal Secures more than $31 million for Seattle-Area Projects

WASHINGTON – U.S. Representative Pramila Jayapal (WA-07) announced today that she secured more than $31 million in federal funding for 15 community-based projects in the Seattle area. 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. The new funding is part of the Fiscal Year 2023 appropriations legislation, a robust package that will move through the House of Representatives. 

“I am deeply proud to announce that all 15 of the transformative community-based projects that I fought for on behalf of our district have been successfully included in the House’s appropriations legislation,” said Congresswoman Jayapal. “This is a critical first step towards bringing home millions of additional federal dollars that will expand access to affordable housing, arts, science, education, and community services, and enrich the lives of my constituents. I’m looking forward to moving this legislation and continuing to advocate on behalf of these necessary projects that will advance necessary services for the Seattle area.”
