Senator Feinstein’s Fiscal Year 2024 Congressionally Directed Spending Requests

Congressionally Directed Spending (CDS) Requests (referred to as “community project funding” in the House of Representatives): According to Senate Rule XLIV, a CDS is a provision “included primarily at the request of a Senator providing, authorizing, or recommending a specific amount of discretionary budget authority, credit authority, or other spending authority for a contract, loan, loan guarantee, grant, loan authority or other expenditure with or to an entity, or targeted to a specific State, location or Congressional district, other than through a statutory or administrative formula-driven or competitive award process.” 

Generally speaking, CDS is funding requested for a specific project in a specific location. Not all subcommittees will be accepting requests for CDS spending, so please pay attention to specific subcommittee guidance. CDS recipients must be a non-profit or government entity.

Programmatic Funding and Language Requests: These types of requests are general funding requests for national and regional programs, and/or bill and report language requests that directs, encourages, or urges an agency or department to carry out an action.
