FY2023 Appropriations

This year Senator Warnock will be accepting both programmatic and congressionally directed spending requests as part of the FY23 appropriations process. The vast majority of federal discretionary spending will continue to be programmatic funding.

The vast majority of federal discretionary spending will continue to be programmatic funding. Programmatic funding includes most federal agency programs, including programs which award money to Georgia entities (e.g. state and local governments, non-profit organizations, and for-profit businesses) through funding formulas, competitive grant applications, or loans. You should use the programmatic request form to submit topline funding level and language requests for federal programs — not specific projects.

Programmatic requests were due by midnight on Friday, April 8, 2022. See below for more information on congressionally directed spending requests, which have a separate form and separate deadlinePlease reach out to if you have any questions about Senator Warnock’s FY23 appropriations requests process.

FY23 DEFENSE Programmatic requests: Due to the delayed release of detailed Department of Defense budget request information, we have created a portal for defense programmatic requests only which will stay open until midnight on Monday, April 25, 2022. Please use this link to submit your DEFENSE programmatic requests before the deadline.

For those requesting assistance or information about federal grants, please visit the Grants page to learn more.

Congressionally Directed Spending

Disclaimer: The purpose of this application is to identify high-impact projects in Georgia that can reach completion with assistance from the federal government. For-profit entities are not eligible to receive Congressionally Directed Spending.

Eligible Accounts: A specific list of accounts under which CDS requests were supported in the Fiscal Year 2022 process available here.
