MCOG and Hancock County Planning Commission are partnering to host a two-hour workshops that will include Congressional delegation staff members from the offices of Senator Collins, Senator King, Representative Pingree, and Representative Golden. The purpose of these workshops will be to discuss the Congressionally Directed Spending (CDS) and Community Project Funding (CPF) as well as best practices for interested applicants. These workshops are highly advised for municipal leaders and nonprofit organizations. Both workshops will have options to attend in-person and remotely, and both meetings will be recorded for those who are unable to attend either meeting.

Please note that our guest speakers will be able to answer questions about previous years processes, eligibility guidelines, and best practices. However, guest speakers may not be able to speak to this coming year's process as work continues to be conducted in Washington D.C. on the current year’s appropriations bills.

Below are links to each of the Maine Congressional delegation offices, with examples of projects they have supported through the federal appropriations process in previous years:
