Today, Rep. Marie Gluesenkamp Perez (WA-03) announced the 15 community projects that she has nominated for Fiscal Year 2024 (FY24) funding through the Community Project Funding process.

Last month, Rep. Gluesenkamp Perez opened her Community Project Funding application and selected projects based on eligibility, likelihood of acceptance, geographical diversity, and community support. More information about the House FY24 funding process can be found here.

“I’m focused on good governance – being responsible stewards of taxpayer dollars and making sure those dollars have the greatest impact. I selected these projects because they’re going to have a real, tangible impact on the lives of everyone in those communities. I look forward to seeing this process through and getting Southwest Washington the investments it needs and deserves,” said Rep. Gluesenkamp Perez.
