PHILLIPS ANNOUNCES MORE THAN $22 MILLION IN INVESTMENTS FOR MINNESOTA’S THIRD DISTRICT
The Congressman secured the Community Project Funding for critical infrastructure, public safety and healthcare programs
Washington, December 29, 2022
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, Representative Dean Phillips announced the passage of more $22 million to fund 15 community projects directly serving the people of Minnesota’s Third District. The funding was part of a bipartisan appropriations process included in the omnibus package the President Biden is poised to sign. The Congressman’s projects stretch throughout the district, from critical infrastructure in communities like Corcoran and Plymouth, to affordable housing in Brooklyn Park, to needed investments in green energy technology, education, healthcare and public safety across the district.
“Representation begins with listening, each of these projects started with a group of citizens expressing a need to me or a member of my staff,” Phillips said. “We must make investments in our cities and towns based on the guidance of local people, not bureaucrats in Washington, D.C. I am so thankful for the mayors, police chiefs, fire chiefs and other community leaders who brought these needed projects to our attention so we can continue to invest in our children’s future.”
One of the Congressman’s Community Project Funding recipients, the Plymouth Public Works Department, was featured in the Congressman’s popular “On the Job with Dean” video series.
