Senators Menendez and Booker announced that the application process for Congressionally Directed Spending (CDS) requests is open after the Senate Appropriations Committee released guidelines for FY22.
Public entities, including local units of government and not-for-profit organizations, are eligible to apply for CDS awards. Private for-profit entities are not eligible for CDS awards.
To make a CDS request, Senator Menendez and Senator Booker each have created online applications. The deadline to apply is May 28, 2021.
Senator Booker’s office has created a FAQ page to answer many questions municipal officials may have.
This is a competitive process and funding is not guaranteed.
