Appropriations And CDS
Congressionally Directed Spending Requests
CDS is a mechanism by which members of Congress can request funding for specific projects in their home state that have been submitted for consideration by nonprofits, as well as state and local government entities.
We are continuing to push to make sure Colorado’s Congressionally Directed Funding FY24 requests remain in the final appropriations package.
As we continue to work towards securing these FY24 funds, we are gearing up for FY25 appropriations requests. This year, we are providing an interest form for stakeholders intending to request Congressionally Directed Spending. Though it is not required, we encourage communities to fill out this form so that we can review your project, provide relevant feedback, and further engage with your request prior to the official request period. The official form will be released upon final guidance.
