How to Submit Congressional Directed Spending Webinar

11:15 am - 12:30 pm, Wednesday, February 15, 2023

One of the most fundamental constitutional duties of Congress is the appropriations process, the annual allocation of funds for federal discretionary programs that support national defense, small businesses, transportation, food assistance for low-income seniors, research and development, and much more. As a senior member of the Senate Appropriations Committee, Senator Shaheen looks to ensure that the federal government invests in policies and programs that provide assistance to Granite State communities and help our nation move forward.

In FY 2022, Senator Shaheen secured $69,047,000 for 80 New Hampshire projects. In FY 2023, Senator Shaheen secured $111,359,972 for 105 New Hampshire projects. In preparation for the Congressionally Directed Spending (CDS) request process for fiscal year (FY) 2024, the Office of U.S. Senator Jeanne Shaheen is partnering with the New Hampshire Municipal Association to host an information session on the CDS application and request process.

The deadline to submit a CDS request to the Office of U.S. Senator Jeanne Shaheen for FY 2024 is March 10, 2023.
