Investing in Rhode Island’s Future
Each year, states rely heavily on Congress for federal funding to finance everything from highway investment and housing assistance to health care and education grants. In Rhode Island, over 33 percent of the state budget comes from federal dollars. Senator Reed works every day to preserve this crucial funding.
As a member of the Appropriations Committee and Ranking Member of its Subcommittee on Transportation, Housing, and Urban Development, Reed has secured critical funds to generate jobs and economic opportunities throughout Rhode Island.
Today, Senator Reed continues to work with his colleagues in the Senate and the U.S. House of Representatives to secure vital support for cities and towns, hospitals, colleges and universities, military facilities, and non-profits across the state.
These federal resources enable Rhode Island to create and sustain jobs, expand and improve our infrastructure, protect the environment, and help strengthen our national defense.
