Levin Announces FY23 Local Projects Selected for Consideration by Appropriations Committee

OAKLAND COUNTY, MI – Today, Congressman Andy Levin (D-Bloomfield Township), announced a list of fifteen local projects he has submitted to the House Appropriations Committee for funding consideration in Fiscal Year 2023. Last year, Congressman Levin secured $8.8 million in federal funding for local projects, which was signed into law by President Joe Biden in March. If fully funded, these new projects, chosen to align with principles of equity and accessibility, will bring over $19 million to communities in Oakland and Macomb Counties.

“It’s an incredible honor to use my voice in Congress to advocate for much-needed resources in Oakland and Macomb Counties to ensure no one is left behind,” said Congressman Levin. “These projects will bring state-of-the-art, energy-efficient equipment to Berkley, improve and resurface local roads and walking paths, provide Holocaust education for students across Michigan, expand a public library in St. Clair Shores, replace and scale up existing community spaces, protect our region’s drinking water in Lake St. Clair and so much more.”

“Ferndale has a great need for community recreation space, and unfortunately, funding those needs can be a challenge for a community of our size,” said Ferndale City Manager Joseph Gacioch. “Our community center has been shuttered over the course of the pandemic, so I am ecstatic for the opportunity to utilize Community Project Funding for a renovation of a key recreation facility at Martin Road Park.”

“It is imperative that Michigan’s students and teachers have greater access to The Holocaust Center to better understand the Holocaust and its lessons to meet today’s growing need for acceptance and social responsibility,” said CEO of The Zekelman Holocaust Center Rabbi Eli Mayerfeld. “Our entire organization is so grateful to Congressman Levin for his support, so students can learn about the deadly consequences of hate and the importance of respect for all people of all religions and cultures.”

“The City of Pontiac is grateful to Congressman Andy Levin for the support of our Golf Drive and Bagley Street Reconstruction project,” said Pontiac Mayor Tim Greimel. “This potential investment in the City’s infrastructure will have a tremendous positive impact on the community and quality of life of Pontiac residents.”

“Renovation of the St. Clair Shores Public Library’s Youth Services Room, which will include a makerspace, updated technology, and a designated area for young adults, will demonstrate to our community that the Library is an advocate for youth and families and is a driving force for the future,” said St. Clair Shores Public Library Director Rosemary Orlando. “We applaud Congressman Levin’s ongoing commitment and deep understanding of the powerful role that libraries play in society.  He is a true Library champion.”

“At the Macomb County Public Works Office, our mantra is, ‘Water quality equals quality of life,’” said Public Works Commissioner Candice S. Miller. “We feel that capturing trash is one thing we can do to improve the lake instead of letting the litter disburse into the lake where it unfortunately could wash up on shores, harm fish and other wildlife, and hurt water quality in the lake that is the source of drinking water for millions of people in the region.”
