Jayapal Announces Community Project Funding Requests for FY25

SEATTLE – U.S. Representative Pramila Jayapal (WA-07) is today announcing her Community Project Funding (CPF) requests that she will be advocating to include in the Fiscal Year 2025 (FY25) appropriations bills. These 15 projects could bring up to $56 million to the Seattle area. 

“Delivering for the Seattle area is the most important part of my job, and I am so proud to be working to bring home this money for innovative and critical projects across our community,” said Jayapal. “This funding will make our community safer – with both public safety funding and upgrades to aging transit infrastructure, more resilient to the climate crisis, and overall a better place to live. While Republicans in Congress continue to lead through chaos, I will be standing up for you, working to get this across the finish line.”

Jayapal is working to provide the following funding amounts for CPF in the FY25 budget:

  • $3 million for Central Puget Sound Regional Transit Authority’s Stadium Pocket Track Reconfiguration
  • $5 million for the City of Lake Forest Park’s Lakefront Park Community Center
  • $5 million for the City of Seattle’s Lake City Community Center and Affordable Housing Redevelopment
  • $10 million for the City of Seattle’s Seattle Waterfront Elliott Bay Seawall Project, Phase 2
  • $3 million for the City of Shoreline’s Shoreline N 175th Street Corridor Improvements Project (Phase 1)
  • $4 million for the City of Shoreline’s Trail Along the Rail
  • $3.75 million for the City of Seattle Department of Transportation’s Third Avenue Revitalization
  • $933,000 for the King County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office King County Violent Crime Victim Services and Court Backlog Reduction project
  • $2.63 million for the Northwest Seaport Alliance’s Terminal 18 On-Dock Rail Restoration and Capacity Expansion
  • $1.5 million for the Port of Seattle’s Pier 86 Grain Terminal Switcher Locomotive Replacement
  • $800,000 for the Port of Seattle’s Seattle Waterfront Sea Level Rise Vulnerability Assessment
  • $4.5 million for the University of Washington’s AI Research Infrastructure
  • $5 million for the University of Washington’s Cold Lab
  • $281,000 for the Washington State Department of Ecology’s Evaluating Shoreline Restoration Effectiveness, Vashon and Maury Island project
  • $7 million for the Washington State Department of Transportation’s Seattle Ferry Terminal Shoreside Electrification 

In the FY24 budget, Jayapl secured $7,566,000 for affordable housing and emergency shelters, which is expected to build or renovate nearly 300 housing units throughout the district and maintain emergency shelter for 200 individuals. However, in the FY25 budget process, Republicans eliminated non-profits from eligibility for certain funding streams, disqualifying multiple previously eligible housing projects in WA-07. 

More detailed information on each of these projects can be found here. Since the reinstatement of CPF by the Democratic House leadership in the 117th Congress, Jayapal has secured $57,626,089 for 39 community projects in WA-07. The full list from FY22 can be found here, FY23 here, and FY24 here.
