FY2022 Congressionally Directed Spending

FY2022 Congressionally Directed Spending

Chairman Leahy announced the Senate Appropriations Committee would accept requests for congressionally directed spending (CDS) for Fiscal Year 2022. Congressionally directed spending requests must adhere to the existing requirements in Rule XLIV of the Standing Rules of the Senate and with additional reforms instated by Chairman Leahy. A list of Rule XLIV requirements and reforms can be found here.

Chairman Leahy’s reforms limited the scope of the FY22 CDS process. The Senate Appropriations Committee restricted the number of accounts eligible for congressionally directed spending. Additionally, congressionally directed spending will be capped at one percent of all discretionary spending. 

All of Senator Warner’s CDS requests were posted by July 23, 2021. Submission of a request to the committee does not guarantee funding.
