Congress reinstituted Congressionally Directed Spending (often referred to as earmarks) in early 2021. Since then, hundreds of county governments have secured billions of dollars in funding during the last three funding cycles. Nearly half of all earmark funding has been provided to government entities for a wide range of local projects and initiatives. Funded projects include all manner of road and transportation projects, wastewater and drinking water system projects, community centers and facilities acquisitions, flood mitigation, blight elimination, emergency services and police facilities, and more.
