Fitzpatrick Announces Community Funding Projects from Congress for District
Congressman Brian Fitzpatrick (R-PA 1 ) voted for the omnibus appropriations package for Fiscal Year 2023, securing support for 15 community projects in the 1st Congressional District.
Fitzpatrick said in a brief release that, in 2021, the U.S. House of Representatives implemented Community Project Funding (CPF), which provides Members of Congress more input in the funding decisions that directly impact their districts by allowing local community groups to request project funding.
Projects Proposed by Fitzpatrick cover an array of services and efforts, such as facilitating Self-Sufficiency, support for a new county wide rapid DNA testing program operated by the Sheriffs office, intensive care unit expansion at Lower Bucks Hospital, and branch revitalization funds for the YMCA of Morrisville.
“I am pleased that community project funding for PA-01 that I have fought for was included in the House-passed bipartisan spending package. This critical funding will soon be delivered to address needs across Bucks and Montgomery Counties, including mental health and health services, financial education resources, and community and public infrastructure revitalization. I look forward to working with community leaders to implement these community projects in a timely fashion,” Fitzpatrick said.
The projects below were approved for funding:
