U.S. Senator Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska)

Appropriations & Congressionally Directed Spending Requests

Now that the President has detailed his priorities for Fiscal Year 2023, Congress will begin to evaluate which programs to fund and at what levels. As part of this, and just as we did for FY 2022, we will have an opportunity to bring taxpayer dollars back to our state through a very transparent Congressionally Directed Spending process. I encourage Alaskans to submit their requests for Congressionally Directed Spending and for programmatic priorities.

For requests that fall under the Subcommittees on Agriculture, Rural Development, Food and Drug Administration, and Related Agencies; Commerce, Justice, and Science; Energy and Water; and Military Construction, Veterans Affairs, and Related Agencies; please submit them by April 15 at 11:59 PM AKDT.

For requests that fall under the Subcommittees on Defense; Financial Services; Homeland Security, Interior, Environment, and Related Agencies; Labor, Health and Human Services, Education, and Related Agencies; the Legislative Branch; State, Foreign Operations, and Related Programs; and Transportation, Housing and Urban Development, and Related Agencies; please submit them by April 22 at 11:59PM AKDT.

General Guidance information, including deadlines for receiving requests by Subcommittee, can be found HERE.

FY2022 Congressionally Directed Spending (CDS) Requests 

The Fiscal Year 2022 federal appropriations process includes opportunities to fund local projects through Congressionally Directed Spending (CDS). Reforms to the appropriations process were announced on April 26, 2021 by Senate Appropriations Committee Chairman Patrick Leahy that the Senate Appropriations Committee will, on a bipartisan basis, accept requests for CDS items for appropriations bills for the fiscal year that begins October 1, 2021. Senator Murkowski’s CDS requests can be found below.
