Financial Services and General Government

The Subcommittee on Financial Services and General Government is accepting community project requests for the following accounts:

  • Small Business, Small Business Initiatives

To see the full guidance from this Subcommittee, please click here. All requests must comply with underlying statutory and regulatory requirements.

To submit a request, click on the link for the appropriate account to download the submission template.

Under this option, requests for Community Projects in support of small businesses, such as entrepreneur training, workforce development, counseling, research, and construction or acquisition of facilities will be considered. Project recipients must be other units of government or nonprofit organizations to be considered eligible.

Examples of the differences in request as follows:

  • Community Project Requests are funding requests for a specific non-Federal entity to carry out a specific project.

    • Example: Provide $500,000 for an entrepreneur training program at a nonprofit in City, State.

  • Programmatic Requests are requests to fund a specific program in our bill at a specified level.

    • Example: Provide $150,000,000 for Small Business Development Centers.

  • Language Requests are requests to include specific bill or report language that does not direct funding to a particular entity but encourages, urges, or directs some type of action by an agency.

    • Example: The Committee encourages SBA and its resource partners to continue efforts to increase outreach and direct support to women entrepreneurs and small businesses in underserved communities.

For each Community Project request, requesters will be asked to respond to a series of questions intended to provide transparency and ensure the Community Project is a valuable use of taxpayer funds.
