Pascrell Wins Over $17 Million for North Jersey Community Projects

Congressman Bill Pascrell, Jr. (D-NJ-09) announced today that he has successfully included $17,624,644 for several North Jersey community projects in the 2024 government spending bill passed by the House. In sum, Congressman Pascrell has secured funding for 17 local projects that include flood mitigation, electric vehicle infrastructure, road and bridge enhancements, and more.

The minibus appropriations bill contains six parts: Agriculture, Rural Development, Food and Drug Administration, and Related Agencies; Commerce, Justice, Science, and Related Agencies; Energy and Water Development and Related Agencies; Interior, Environment, and Related Agencies; Military Construction, Veterans Affairs, and Related Agencies; Transportation, and Housing and Urban Development, and Related Agencies. 

“These federal funds for our local northern New Jersey communities represent our commitment to investing directly in the people we represent,” said Congressman Pascrell. “The very purpose of good government is to better the daily lives of our neighbors. I can say with confidence that countless lives will be improved by these projects by way of better roads, cleaner water, reduced flooding, and vibrant spaces for our residents. I look forward to President Biden signing this funding into law so we can break ground on these needed upgrades in our cities and towns.”

Since Democrats’ resuscitation of community project funding, Congressman Pascrell has been aggressive in bringing funds back to North Jersey, delivering more than $20 million for community projects across Bergen, Hudson, and Passaic counties in the past two years alone.
