NAYDO Webinar - U.S. Federal Earmarks are Back: Learn to Navigate the Process
Presenter: Katie Adamson, Vice President, Health Policy and Partnerships, Government Relations and Policy, YMCA of the USA

Congress eliminated “Earmarks” in 2011, because the process for Members to bring federal support back home to fund urgent and worthy special district projects was criticized by some as focusing too much on special interests and lacking appropriate transparency. For the first time in 10 years, Congress restored this Member-directed funding to a select number of Community Projects through the appropriations process. Now called “Community Project Funding,” these dollars are limited to nonprofits, municipalities, and state entities, carving out 1% of the federal budget to be equally divided between the House and the Senate, with each body specifying their own guidelines and timeline for the process.

This webinar will provide participants with a working knowledge of the Appropriations process and timing for applying for a Community Project request in the next federal budget cycle.

Attendees will learn about different types of requests Ys can make, depending on the proposed project, the need to build a compelling case for the ask, and the importance of fostering even closer ties with congressional members throughout the year, so they understand the impact of the Y and their proposed project in their respective districts and state.
