US Senators Tim Kaine and MarkWarner have announced funding for two Northampton County projects.

The Senators successfully secured $197,000 for the Eastern Shore Foundation to support a prototyping and training center for advanced manufacturing in Northampton County. This would help train workers for jobs in local industries.

The Senators also successfully secured $159,000 for the Eastern Shore Rural Health System to provide pediatric dental services in Northampton County.

This funding is only in the draft of the Senate proposal currently, and will still need to be included in the House version and signed by President Biden to become a reality.

As part of the Fiscal Year 2024 appropriations process, members of Congress were able to work with the communities they represent to request funding for local community projects, otherwise known as earmarks, in a manner that promotes transparency and accountability. This process allows Congress to dedicate federal funding for specific projects in Virginia. The Senators worked to secure more than $111 million for community projects across the Commonwealth. In addition to battling for these priorities, the Senators will work to ensure funds obtained by Virginia House members also remain in the final spending bills.
