Community Project Funding Requests

Congresswoman Nikema Williams will submit funding requests for important community projects in Georgia’s Fifth Congressional District to the House Appropriations Committee. The request form can be found here. Projects must be submitted by 11:59 pm on Saturday, April 27, 2024.

Please note that programmatic and language requests should be submitted here.

On Thursday, April 25, 2024, the Appropriations Committee released guidance for Fiscal Year 2025 (FY25), which can be found here. Please review this information before submitting a request. 

Unlike previous years, nonprofit organizations, aside from public institutions of higher education, are not eligible to submit projects funded through the Department of Housing and Urban Development.

Each Representative is allowed to request funding for up to 15 projects in their community – although only a handful may be funded. Projects are restricted to a limited number of federal funding streams, and only state and local governments and eligible non-profit entities are permitted to receive funding. 

In compliance with House Rules and Committee requirements, Congresswoman Nikema Williams must certify that she, her spouse, and her immediate family have no financial interest in any of the projects she has requested, and that each project contains a federal nexus.

Please note:


  • Congresswoman Williams will NOT accept requests for projects outside of Georgia’s Fifth District.
  • The recipient of the CPF must be a state, local or tribal governmental entity or a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. NOTE: New this year, nonprofits, except for public institutions of higher education, will not be eligible to request projects funded by the Department of Housing and Urban Development.
  • Requests made by for-profit entities are not permitted and will not be submitted for consideration.
  • Beginning last year, the Appropriations Committee stopped accepting project requests in the Defense; Financial Services and General Government; Labor, Health and Human Services, and Education; Legislative Branch; or State and Foreign Operations Bills.
  • Additionally, in the Transportation, Housing and Urban Development Bill, the Committee will not accept requests to fund museums, commemoratives, memorials, swimming pools, water parks, golf courses, health care facilities (with some exceptions for projects in rural areas), entertainment venues (such as theaters or performing arts centers), strictly research or planning activities, or buildings for the general conduct of government.
  • You must be able to demonstrate that the request has community support. This requirement is integral for a successful CPF request.  Examples of community support include but are not limited to support letters from local elected officials, press articles, state-intended use plan or community development plan, or a municipal resolution of support.
  • Funding must be for FY25 only.
  • A request submitted by Congresswoman Williams to the Committee does NOT guarantee the project will be funded.

The projects that Congresswoman Williams submits to the House Appropriations Committee will appear here.

The submission deadline for CPFs is 11:59 pm on Saturday, 4/27. Please direct any questions you may have to Nick Pennington at 202-225-3801 or
