CONGRESSIONAL EARMARKS

Over the last three years, Congress has diverted $3.73 billion in annual federal funding from the SRFs to pay for congressional earmarks, often resulting in a net loss of total combined funding for water infrastructure in the state (SRF funding plus earmarks).

States with a NET LOSS of Federal Funding for Water Infrastructure Projects

Since the return of earmarks in 2022, the majority of states and jurisdictions have experienced a net loss of annual federal funding for clean water and/or drinking water infrastructure (SRFs plus congressional earmarks) in at least one fiscal year.
