Jayapal Announces FY24 Seattle-Area Funding Requests

WASHINGTON – U.S. Representative Pramila Jayapal (WA-07) is today announcing her Community Project Funding (CPF) requests for the 2024 Fiscal Year (FY24). CPF allows Members of Congress to secure funding for specific projects in their districts through the annual appropriations process.

“In the two years since Democrats revived Community Project Funding, I’ve been proud to bring more than $37 million directly to projects across the Seattle area that will help to preserve our culture and history, address the affordable housing crisis, and improve the safety and accessibility of transit,” said Congresswoman Jayapal. “This year, I’m thrilled to announce 15 more projects that I’ll be fighting to fully fund. From food assistance to affordable housing, earthquake resilience to mental health crisis intervention, and so much more, these are projects that will make Seattle a better place to live and ensure that more of our neighbors are able to thrive, not just survive.”

Jayapal is submitting requests for more than $50 million in federal funding for 15 projects (listed in alphabetical order by project recipient):

  • $5,000,000 for the City of Burien’s Boulevard Park Community Flood Reduction Project
