House Appropriations Committee
House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee
The recent lifting of a moratorium on “earmarks” – now rebranded as Community Project Funding (CPF) – has already resulted in thousands of requests from lawmakers for their specific districts in both the Appropriations and Transportation/Infrastructure investment processes. While this dynamic has created an opportune window to pursue specific funding projects of importance, it also requires a deep understanding and ability to navigate evolving dynamics in Congress to achieve success.
Our team has decades of experience both on Capitol Hill as staffers and now as outside consultants obtaining project funding for major universities, community colleges, non-profit organizations, and local public projects to name just a few. As part of our expertise in providing actionable government relations and strategic counsel, our team has extensive experience navigating the complex direct and indirect political and procedural landscapes that are associated with Community Project Funding. Importantly, we complement this process through our relationships with relevant lawmakers that will play a key role in driving the process for CPF’s.
The new House earmark process, officially called “Community Project Funding” in the House Committee on Appropriations and “Member Designated Projects” in the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee, allows each lawmaker to request a portion of funds that would already be allocated and disbursed as a part of the federal budget process. At the Vogel Group we assist our clients in assessing their funding needs, creating a roadmap to obtain a one-time or multi-year funding stream, and providing the boots on the ground to get the funding across the finish line.
