DOVER — Congresswoman Mikie Sherrill (NJ-11) announced the 15 Community Project Funding (CPF) requests she submitted to the House Appropriations Committee for Fiscal Year 2025. If included in next year’s budget, these local projects will create jobs, drive our local economic growth, and improve the quality of life throughout the district and state. Among the 15 projects was a Lead Service Line Replacement for the Town of Dover. She requested $2,500,000. The Town of Dover will use this funding to complete the next phase of its “Lead Service Line Replacement” project. Replacing these lines will provide residents with safe and clean drinking water in the most urgent areas that need upgrading. It will also bolster community development in Dover’s most economically vulnerable areas.

“I am excited to announce the 15 new Community Projects I am submitting this year on behalf of the 11th Congressional District. From public safety to water infrastructure to streetscape improvements and recreational spaces, all of these projects would improve the quality of life and meet the needs of residents without raising local taxes,” said Rep. Sherrill. “I want to thank the local officials for submitting their projects. In Congress, I’ll continue to fight to deliver these funds for our community.” 

Over the past three years, Congresswoman Sherrill has secured over $43 million in federal funding for 39 projects across North Jersey. Just this week, she was honored by the New Jersey Conference of Mayors as the U.S. Representative of the Year for the resources she has brought back to the Garden State.
