Rep. Mondaire Jones Submits Funding Requests for Community Projects Throughout Rockland County

Published

on

NYACK, NY – Congressman Mondaire Jones submitted funding requests for 10 important community projects in New York’s 17th Congressional District to the House Appropriations Committee.

As part of the FY2022 federal appropriations process, the Community Project Funding program is an opportunity for projects that benefit the communities in Westchester and Rockland Counties to receive direct federal funding. While Jones submitted these requests to the Appropriations Committee, it is up to the committee to determine which programs ultimately receive federal funding.

Below is a list of submitted funding requests for the following Rockland community-based projects:

New Center of Excellence for Women’s Health at Refuah Health Center (Spring Valley, NY)
West Nyack Revitalization (Clarkstown, NY)
Relocation and Rehabilitation of Piermont Village Hall (Piermont, NY)
Community Green Development (Spring Valley, NY)
Rockland County Pride Center Outpatient Diagnostic and Treatment Facility (Nyack, NY)

“I’m thrilled to announce that I’ve submitted funding requests for 10 incredible community projects,” said Congressman Mondaire Jones. “From Port Chester to Spring Valley, these projects span our congressional district and are integral to our communities. Just as our communities have served and supported the federal government, it’s the government’s turn to help them, and that’s exactly what this Community Project Funding would do.”

Rep. Mondaire Jones on Build Back Better Act

Published

on

Congressman Mondaire Jones (D-NY) released the following statement:

“Today is an historic day for our nation, and for the great people of Westchester and Rockland Counties. Thanks to the leadership of progressives—who insisted on passing not just the bipartisan infrastructure bill, but also the larger Build Back Better Act—the House passed the most significant investment in our nation and our people in more than half a century.

The bill will guarantee that high-quality child care is affordable for every family in America; save the planet from climate catastrophe while creating millions of good-paying, union jobs; expand Medicare to include hearing; continue to cut child poverty in half through an extension of the expanded Child Tax Credit; make an historic investment in housing affordability; lift the cap on the State and Local Tax deduction that has unjustly burdened working families in Westchester and Rockland; and so much more.

I’m especially proud that this bill contains key provisions that I led the fight to secure: universal child care and an increase in the SALT deduction cap to $80,000.

This victory is a testament to the strength and tenacity of the Congressional Progressive Caucus, of which I’m proud to be a Deputy Whip, and which held the line throughout this process to ensure we passed a bill that meets this unprecedented moment of overlapping crises.

We in the House have done our job, and now our colleagues in the Senate must do theirs. I look forward to President Biden making good on his promise to secure 51 votes for the Build Back Better Act in the Senate expeditiously so we can get this bill onto his desk and begin delivering the change people in Westchester, Rockland, and across America need and deserve. The American people are counting on us to deliver, and we must do so without delay.”
