Appropriations Requests

Our Founding Fathers trusted Congress —and in particular, the House of Representatives— with the “power of the purse,” the perogative to tax and spend on behalf of the federal government and the American people. Every year, Congress passes 12 annual appropriation acts, as well as supplemental appropriation acts as needed. These appropriation acts provide budget authority to obligate and expend funds from the U.S. Treasury for specific purposes. As your member of Congress, Rep. Phillips is on a mission to bring more federal investments back to Minnesota and advocates for appropriations that will benefit our community - that's where you come in.

The deadline to apply for FY 2022 appropriations has passed. If your organization has a connection to Minnesota's Third District and would like more information about the appropriations process, please email
