Every year, Congress allocates federal funds through the appropriations process to pay for critical programs such as our national defense, health care, infrastructure, education, and much more. We are committed to ensuring funding for Colorado priorities, and welcome your requests as to what those should be. We accept two types of appropriations requests: programmatic and Congressionally Directed Spending. Programmatic requests are requests for Congress to fund an authorized federal program at a specific level or to include language directing a federal agency to implement a program in a specific way.
The deadline to submit requests for appropriations for fiscal year 2024 has passed. Please visit this page next year for fiscal year 2025 appropriations requests.
