Energy and Water Congressionally Directed Spending Requests

Senator Gillibrand has submitted funding requests to the Senate Appropriations Committee for various state and local community projects that will benefit New Yorkers all across the state. Projects are listed in alphabetical order by location.

Under guidelines issued by the Senate Appropriations Committee, each Senator had the opportunity to submit CDS requests for their state for Fiscal Year 2023. It should be noted that only a handful of projects may actually be funded, and we cannot guarantee which those will be. Projects are restricted to a limited number of federal funding streams, and only state and local governments and eligible non-profit entities are permitted to receive funding.

In compliance with Senate Rules and Committee requirements, Senator Gillibrand has certified that she and her immediate family have no financial interest in any of the projects she has requested.
