One of the most fundamental constitutional duties of Congress is the appropriations process—the annual allocation of funds for federal discretionary programs that support national defense, small businesses, transportation, food assistance for low-income seniors, research and development, and much more. As a member of the Senate Appropriations Committee, Senator Shaheen looks to ensure that the federal government invests in policies and programs that provide assistance to Granite State communities and help our nation move forward. 

That's why it's important to hear directly from you about what the federal budget should prioritize. If your organization participates in federally funded programs, please fill out the following form to detail your requests for program funding. Requests must be merit-based and comply with Senate rules.
