Fiscal Year 2022 Appropriations Request Process for Congresswoman Cheri Bustos

*** This form is NOT for submitting requests for Community Project Funding, and any requests for Community Project Funding submitted through the regular FY22 appropriations request form will NOT be considered. If you are interested in submitting a request for Community Project Funding, please click here instead. ***

Every year, Congress is responsible for allocating funding for offices, programs and grants administered by the federal government. As a member of the Appropriations Committee, I have the opportunity to advocate on behalf of programs that are important to Illinois’ 17th Congressional District.

Funding requests do not guarantee funding for any individual program. These requests should not be confused with grant applications and do not provide the opportunity to request a funding award for a specific non-profit entity or project. In order to be submitted by Congresswoman Bustos for consideration, all requests must comply with all House rules.

This year, our office will be accepting suggested funding and language requests for the FY22 appropriations process electronically. A formal deadline for request submissions will be announced upon receipt of the President’s annual budget request. Please direct any questions about the request process to Leighton Huch at

All appropriations requests must be submitted to our office one week prior to the Subcommittee deadline. This page will be updated with specific deadlines once Subcommittee dates are released.
