appropriations requests

Aloha and welcome to Senator Hirono’s Appropriations Request page.

Senator Hirono has stopped accepting programmatic appropriations requests and requests for Congressionally Directed Spending for federal fiscal year 2023. All requests were submitted by 6:00pm HST on Monday, March 6, 2023. For updates on the appropriations process, email

Senator Hirono supports funding federal programs and community-based projects that demonstrate a clear and compelling benefit to the people of Hawaii. Senator Hirono consults with constituents along with state, local, and community leaders to identify projects and programs that strengthen our communities through federal assistance.

Your requests and assistance are essential to provide Senator Hirono and her staff with the information needed to advocate for Hawaii’s federal funding priorities. 

Important Note: The submission of an application does not guarantee that Senator Hirono will support funding for the requested project or program, or that that project or program will be funded by the Senate Appropriations Committee.

Organizations submitting requests for Congressionally Directed Spending funds must provide detailed budget information for the requested project.  For-profit organizations are ineligible to receive Congressionally Directed Spending funds. Additional information can be found on the Senate Appropriations Committee website HERE.
