Thank you for your interest in submitting an appropriations request to the office of Senator Rosen.

Please read the following instructions before submitting your application.  The office of Senator Rosen will only consider applications that are complete and accurate. 

Individuals and organizations submitting requests for federal funding through the congressional appropriations process should identify requests as either programmatic funding or Congressionally Directed Spending and complete the corresponding form, which can be found at the links below.  All requestors are welcome to submit a programmatic request.  A programmatic funding request is a request to fund a federal agency or program at a specified level.  The Office of Senator Rosen will accept/submit Congressionally Directed Spending requests only from public entities (e.g. Nevada state and local government entities, public colleges and universities, military installations, etc.). Private, for-profit, and non-profit entities will not be eligible to submit requests.

Please note that in reviewing member requests for Congressionally Directed Spending, the Senate Appropriations Committee will implement Rule XLIV of the Standing Rules of the Senate. The following rules will also apply:

  • 1 percent cap on discretionary spending for congressionally directed spending items;
  • No congressionally directed spending items to for-profit entities;
  • Require Senators to post online their congressionally directed spending item requests, as well as their financial certification disclosures attesting that they do not have any financial interest in any of the items requested; and 
  • The Committee will require the Government Accountability Office to audit a sample of enacted congressionally directed spending items and report its findings to Congress.

Due to spending constraints of the federal budget, Congress will not be able to fund all of the programs and requests that Senator Rosen’s office receives or that Senator Rosen submits.  We appreciate hearing from Nevadans on their priorities and how they believe Congress should allocate federal dollars.
