Perlmutter pushes for federal funding for Congressional District

West metro cities could see millions for local projects

Posted

U.S. Rep. Ed Perlmutter (CO-07) announced support for new projects across the 7th Congressional District as part of the Community Project Funding requests for Fiscal Year 2023 on May 16.

The new Community Project Funding was first available in FY2022 in which Perlmutter secured funding for ten Community Project Funding (CPF) requests totaling $7.6 million.

 “All of these community projects represent critical investments and services for our community and the people who live here,” Perlmutter said. “I’m glad I once again have the opportunity to be a voice for my community and advocate for these important projects.”

Local governments and nonprofit organizations in the 7th Congressional District were encouraged to apply for funding. Several projects have been submitted to the House Appropriations Committee for consideration in FY23, but are not guaranteed to receive funding. Those projects include Boys and Girls Clubs of Metro Denver Programming (with including Lakewood locations), Food Bank of the Rockies Donation Facilities, Phase 2 of Wadsworth construction from 35th Avenue to 41st Avenue in Wheat Ridge and Peaks to Plains Trail funding in Golden.

According to Perlmutter’s press release on the funding requests, the Boys and Girls Clubs money would provide high quality after-school and summer programming for 6-18 year olds within four Clubs in the 7th Congressional District from Lakewood to Commerce City. And the Peaks to Plains Trail project would improve connectivity of this regional trail route within downtown Golden and expand travel and recreational options for residents and visitors of Golden and Metro Denver. It would also work to improve the experience of one of the most congested trail segments and relieve potential conflicts with other Clear Creek users.
