Congresswoman Grace Meng announced on Jan. 5 that she has secured more than $21.3 million in federal funding for 15 critical projects throughout Queens.
The funding was included in the new 2023 government spending package that passed the House and Senate late last month, and has been signed into law by President Biden.
The money that Meng secured is allocated under Congress’ Community Project Funding. The House Appropriations Committee is the panel that funds all of the federal government’s agencies, programs, and projects. In last year’s government spending bill, the Meng obtained nearly $10 million for projects throughout Queens.
