Appropriations Requests


Appropriations Request Solicitation

Congress will soon begin the annual process of allocating funding levels to support government operations for Fiscal Year (FY) 2020.  As part of this process, the House Committee on Appropriations will solicit feedback from members not currently serving on the Committee.  The requests will help guide the committee as it finalizes the FY 2020 Appropriations Acts.

In order to ensure the interests of California’s 39th Congressional District are fully incorporated in the final FY 2020 Appropriations Acts, Congressman Cisneros is soliciting feedback from interested entities on the federal programs impacting the residents of his district. To that end, we invite you to help our office identify which federal programs are most important to you and your organization.

Rep. Cisneros’ deadline for submissions has passed for 2019, you may still submit appropriations requests but they will not be reviewed until 2020.  Requests submitted in the interim will be considered on a case by case basis. 

Please complete the Congressman’s FY 2020 Appropriations Form below or here ( to indicate your preferred funding levels for programs (“programmatic requests”) or your request to include specific bill or report language (“language requests”). If you have multiple requests, please submit them separately.  Questions may be directed to the Congressman’s Legislative Director, Emma Norvell, at or call our Washington, D.C. office at (202) 225-4111.

As a reminder, requests for earmarks (as defined by House Rule XXI) are prohibited.
