Community Project Funding/Congressionally Directed Spending
- The Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2022 (Public Law 117-103) appropriated $200,798,267 in Transit Infrastructure Grants for Community Project Funding, also known as Congressionally Directed Spending.
- FTA’s FY 2022 Apportionment Notice (Section R) provided initial guidance for recipients of this funding, along with Table 20 in FTA’s FY 2022 Apportionment Tables.
Community Project Funding (CPF) is a source of grants for public transportation projects whose recipients and purposes are specifically identified by Congress in an appropriations act, most recently in the FY 2022 Consolidated Appropriations Act. The selected projects and recipients are detailed in the Joint Explanatory Statement (JES), with the list of CPF grants starting on page H3080.
CPF recipients and their allocations are determined by Congress. All recipients were specifically identified in the FY 2022 Appropriations Act.
FY 2022 CPF projects were defined in the JES; 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.
FY 2022 CPF grants are funded at 100% federal share, as Congress did not specify a local match requirement.
