Community Project Funding/Congressionally Directed Spending
The Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2023 (Public Law 117-328) appropriated $360.5 million in Transit Infrastructure Grants for Community Project Funding (CPF), also known as Congressionally Directed Spending (CDS).
CPF is appropriated and allocated from the General Fund for Transit Infrastructure Grants only on an annual basis and at the discretion of Congress. The total funding amounts are specified in the Consolidated Appropriations Act corresponding with each fiscal year, if applicable. The list of projects are found in the accompanying Joint Explanatory Statement.
CPF recipients and their allocations are determined by Congress. All recipients are specifically identified in the Appropriations Act corresponding with the applicable fiscal year.
Expenses for these projects that are eligible under FTA’s authorizing language in federal law (Chapter 53 of Title 49, United States Code) are eligible for reimbursement.
Fiscal year 2022 CPF grants are funded at 100 percent federal share, as Congress did not specify a local match requirement. Fiscal year 2023 CPF grants are available at up to an 80 percent federal share.
