Senator Schatz is interested in hearing from you about funding that benefits Hawai‘i and our nation. Should you have specific suggestions or comments on appropriations priorities for the current appropriations process, you may submit them for consideration through this website. These forms request detailed information that is best provided by organizations, agencies, nonprofits, and firms that are local recipients, administrators, or stakeholders of federal programmatic funding. If you would like to make more general comments about federal programs, please do so using Senator Schatz’s contact page. The full jurisdiction of each subcommittee is viewable on the committee’s web site, www.appropriations.senate.gov.
For your reference, the president’s budget requests are posted on this website: https://www.whitehouse.gov/omb/. The president’s budget is normally released within first few months of each calendar year. If the president's fiscal year 2023 budget is released prior to our application deadline, please include the relevant amount requested in president's budget in your application.
The vast majority of federal discretionary spending will continue to be programmatic funding. Programmatic funding includes most federal agency programs, including programs that award money to Hawaii entities (e.g. state and local government, non-profit organizations, and for-profit businesses) through funding formulas, competitive grant applications, or loans.
For fiscal year 2023 appropriations, forms must be submitted by 6:00 p.m. HST (12:00 a.m. EST) on Tuesday, April 5, 2022. Forms submitted after the deadline will be considered on a rolling basis when possible. If you have not submitted a request in previous years, we recommend that you contact a member of Senator Schatz’s legislative staff well in advance of submitting your form. Please contact Schatz_Appropriations@schatz.senate.gov to be connected with the appropriate legislative staffer.
