House Members Post FY10 Appropriations Requests

By jnurse

The University of Washington has submitted fiscal year 2010 appropriations requests to the state of Washington’s congressional delegation. The requests are part of a strategic federal agenda designed to advance UW specific projects, as well as to bolster agency program accounts that the University draws from on a competitive basis.

Members of Congress receive appropriations requests from many of their constituents and must then decide which projects to advance in the process. Projects selected by individual Members of Congress are then forwarded on to one of twelve appropriations subcommittees. Member of the House of Representatives were required to post their FY10 appropriations requests on their websites by April 3rd. UW FY10 projects selected by state of Washington House members are listed below. At this stage, the selection of projects is by no means a guarantee of funding. Rather, the advancement of projects by Members to the subcommittees is an important step in securing requested funding. The FY10 appropriations process will likely unfold over the course of the summer and fall.
