Pascrell Wins Over $16 Million for North Jersey Community Projects

Every Pascrell request included in these spending bills passed the House of Representatives

U.S. Rep. Bill Pascrell, Jr. (D-NJ-09) today hailed House passage of government appropriations for FY 2023 that includes $16,815,000 for local projects Pascrell had championed. In sum, the package contains funding for all 11 community projects Pascrell had pursued for North Jersey in these pieces of legislation.

“The passage of this funding continues one of the most forward-looking actions Congress has taken in many years,” said Rep. Pascrell. “These federal funds we won today in the House are an investment directly into our beautiful communities. The very purpose of good government is to better the daily lives of our neighbors. Today we did that. It is not hyperbole to say that countless lives will be bettered by these projects in the way of better roads, cleaner water, safer housing, and vibrant space for our kids. The Senate should finish the job we just started and sending this funding to President Biden’s desk.”

Since Democrats’ resuscitation of community project funding, Rep. Pascrell has been aggressive in bringing funding back to North Jersey. In March 2022, Pascrell succeeded in winning over $11 million for 10 projects in the Ninth District signed into law.
