Senator Booker NJ Interior, Environment, and Related Agencies Town of Hammonton The Town of Hammonton is requesting Congressionally Directed Spending funding to investigate and implement preventative repair and reconstruction to the sanitary sewer system infrastructure. Funding will be used for three phases of the project: to study the sanitary sewer system for deterioration and damage and plan for interventive measures; to implement select repairs and slip-lining in identified areas of need and; to evaluate the effects of the repairs made to the system on the overall capacity of the water treatment facilities. These steps are being taken as a preventative measure to prevent a state-directed moratorium on economic and residential growth in the Town. Hammonton NJ $395,000 Website Letter
Senator Booker NJ Interior, Environment, and Related Agencies City of Woodbury In the proposed project, Federal funding will be used to address the crumbling storm water sewer system infrastructure in the City of Woodbury. The system was built over a period of time stretching from the late 1800s into the 1920s, meaning that some of the present system is over 125 years old. These sections are antiquated and well beyond needing to be replaced as Federici & Akin, the City’s engineer, have deemed a majority of the storm sewer system as well beyond the estimated useful life of the components. Over the last decade, there have been multiple issues caused by these deteriorating lines. Some of these issues were minor and only resulted in minimal flooding and expense to the city, while in another case, a collapse due to an exceptionally strong storm in 2019 created a public safety hazard and cost the City over $1.2 Million in emergency repairs that took over four months to complete. With funding from the Congressionally Directed Spending program, the City would be able to complete significant infrastructure upgrades and replacement of segments of the storm water sewer system that are deemed to be at the greatest risk of failure. The three (3) target areas of this proposed project that have been identified as those most in need of intervention (Jackson Street, Horace Street to Warner Street, and Acme Drive to Twells Avenue), portions of the system have collapsed and are continuing to deteriorate due to age. This deterioration is causing water to leach out into the surrounding soil, causing flooding and soil erosion in the immediate area. When this erosion is prolonged, it can lead to clogged pipes, further flooding, or – even worse – sinkholes. These collapses threaten both public and private property, including residential structures, and could cause driving hazards and fall hazards should they damage streets in the city. In one case (Horace Street to Warner Street), a stretch of aged pipe runs beneath the public parking lot of a low-income housing development. Should there be a collapse, emergency closure of this lot for emergency repairs would, at the least, result in residents of this development having no place to park and would limit access to the building. The proposed project will repair the system in places where pipes have collapsed, including the reconstruction of trenches, laying new sewer pipes and tying them in the with the existing system, and any filling, compacting, and paving necessary to complete the replacement. In places where there has not yet been collapse, pipes will be slip-lined where possible – an effective, time-, and cost-efficient way to shore up the structure of the piping. Where slip-lining will not be effective, pipes will be dug up and replaced as necessary. As emergency situations related to storm sewer failure are dangerous to the public and repairs are far more costly than proactive measures, these reconstruction projects are necessary as a preventative measure to protect the safety of the public, as well as the municipal budget of the City of Woodbury. City of Woodbury NJ $118,000 Website Letter
Senator Booker NJ Interior, Environment, and Related Agencies Borough of Bergenfield For the dredging of Cooper’s Pond, which is an important cultural and historic landmark within the Borough of Bergenfield and Bergen County. Cooper’s Pond is popular among residents of the community and sees frequent use as a location where a wide range of passive recreational activities can be enjoyed. The Pond is in urgent need of dredging, as the last time it was dredged was 20 years ago and sediment has continued building up as a result of brooks that flow through the Pond. This buildup of sediment in Cooper’s Pond has reduced the water level within the pond as it is slowly drying it up. The Borough of Bergenfield is requesting $250,000 in Community Project Funding to complete the dredging of Cooper’s Pond. Cooper’s Pond is a scenic park within the Borough that houses several historic landmarks. Bergenfield NJ $250,000 Website Letter

The project is intended to provide public health benefits by reducing sanitary discharges to the Hackensack River during rain events, reducing or eliminating CSS surcharging, or localized flooding into private property and public streets, decreasing impacts to aquatic species and habitats in receiving waters, and allowing for separate connections from newly developed properties to the separated storm and sanitary systems.

Senator Booker NJ Transportation, Housing and Urban Development, and Related Agencies Township of North Bergen To introduce 43 new speed tables throughout the Township, concentrated around local schools, to slow vehicle traffic and improve pedestrian safety. Many North Bergen schools are located along or around busy roadways that lack adequate traffic calming measures. Due to the Township’s high population density and abundance of public schools, many students and faculty have the ability to walk to and from school, but these high traffic areas pose an imminent threat to pedestrians. Over the last three years, there were over 200 injuries and six fatalities from pedestrian crash-related incidents. This presents an imminent public safety threat and furthers the need to commit to long-term traffic calming measures. This project will introduce new speed tables and rapid flashing beacons throughout the Township, concentrated around six local schools, to slow vehicle traffic and improve pedestrian safety. This will provide ample safety to our students, teachers, and pedestrians. North Bergen NJ $488,000 Website Letter
Senator Booker NJ Transportation, Housing and Urban Development, and Related Agencies County of Ocean The funding will be utilized for the construction cost for the Route 539 overpass bridge. Route 539 presents conflicts between military and civilian traffic, particularly in the summer months when the road is heavily used to access shore destinations. Larger military convoys have difficulties crossing Route 539 creating an unsafe condition and instead divert onto State Highway 70 where additional conflicts occur. In 2016, Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst (JBMDL) commissioned a study to evaluate crossing alternatives to enhance accessibility to the training areas east of Route 539. The “County Route 539 Traffic Study” was completed in March 2017. The safest and most efficient alternative identified is the construction of a grade separated crossing (overpass bridge) on Route 539. The overpass bridge project would greatly benefit the federal missions of JBMDL. This connection would facilitate the current federal missions and allow greater access and flexibility for future missions by creating the direct link between the Air Force (McGuire AFB), Army, (Fort Dix), and Navy (Lakehurst NAES) areas of operation spanning Burlington and Ocean Counties. The overpass bridge will allow the Army to expand and protect its vital national mission at its largest site that trains troops of both the Army Reserves and the Army National Guard.

Senator Brown OH Agriculture, Rural Development, Food and Drug Administration, and Related Agencies Arrowhead Joint Fire District Arrowhead Joint Fire District requests funding for the expansion of their current facility. The current fire station was constructed in the 1960’s and was designed for volunteers and smaller apparatus. In 2017, AJFD transitioned from an all-volunteer department to a combination department with paid firefighters. Presently, there are no sleeping quarters, lockers, showers, kitchen facilities, or training/conference rooms. This has been an issue as a small office, located in a different portion of the building, crammed with cots is being utilized for current sleeping quarters. Without showers, there is no way for members to completely clean themselves following a potential HAZMAT or COVID-19 response. Expansion plans would include an electrical system upgrade (which is currently overloaded) and automatic generator (current generator is manual) for entire building which also houses the police station and village hall offices. With the proposed expansion, the facility would meet ADA standards and have climate control allowing it to serve as a temporary shelter for warming and cooling during inclement weather and natural disaster.

Senator Brown OH Agriculture, Rural Development, Food and Drug Administration, and Related Agencies The Ohio State University Funds would support operations and maintenance for the Plant and Animal Agrosecurity Research (PAAR) Facility in Wooster, Ohio, for its fulltime operations during infectious disease trails of significance to human, animal, and plant health. For the operations and maintenance of the Plant and Animal Agrosecurity Research (PAAR) Facility – a biosafety level 3 (BSL-3) laboratory – located on the CFAES Wooster Campus of The Ohio State University. PAAR is a unique research asset of the college, the only facility in Ohio—and one of only two in the U.S. —with the mission for both plant and animal disease-related research. The prevalence of zoonotic diseases, and particularly the sudden onset of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19), has brought to light the lethal threats that infectious diseases and their associated foreign vectors pose to human health, as well as the threats to the U.S. crop and livestock production systems. CFAES houses renowned research programs in human, animal, and plant diseases. Several of its distinguished researchers have a niche expertise in coronaviruses and have years of dedicated experience studying these viral respiratory diseases that have the capability of “spilling over” from wild and/or domestic animal populations to humans, as is presumed to have occurred with COVID-19. In order to conduct quality and proactive research on current, emerging, and future infectious diseases, it is critical that PAAR have adequate funding to support its full, consistent operations and maintenance of its entire research apparatus.

Senator Brown OH Agriculture, Rural Development, Food and Drug Administration, and Related Agencies Montville Fire Department Montville Fire Department’s project is to add an extension on to the existing building. The current building is a converted old school that was built in 1948. The current building also houses the local government offices and community room. Montville Fire Department’s apparatus bay is at maximum capacity. It lacks adequate ventilation which causes carcinogenic residue to cling to walls and turnout gear. It only has one gender-neutral restroom and shower. It lacks sleeping quarters forcing members to sleep in chairs in day room. Some equipment is stored in an out-building which is deteriorating and covered with black mold. The new expansion would enable the department to better take care of their volunteers, equipment, and the community they serve. Montville OH $1,820,000 Website Letter
Senator Brown OH Agriculture, Rural Development, Food and Drug Administration, and Related Agencies Cleveland Tree Coalition The Cleveland Tree Coalition ("The Coalition") is seeking a Congressionally Directed Spending request of $1.5 million to restore the City of Cleveland's tree canopy, specifically focusing on disadvantaged communities of color. The project will leverage city and county funds to restore the City of Cleveland's tree canopy and increase canopy coverage from 18% to 30%. The Coalition will utilize federal support to engage communities of color in a multiyear approach designed to leverage urban reforestation efforts and reduce the effects of climate change. Urban communities, void of green space and adequate tree canopies, are subject to intense periods of heat and poor air quality. Indeed, these communities, referred to as "heat islands," can be 10-13 degrees hotter during summer months when compared to suburban neighborhoods with an established shade tree canopy. The project would span across FY22 and FY23 and focus on planting native tree species, well suited to urban settings such as oaks, sweetgums, and locusts. In addition to increasing the number of trees planted in the City of Cleveland, the project would also target resources towards community engagement and education. Trees will be planted in public green space. To allow residents to be partners in reforesting their neighborhoods, opportunities will be provided to plant trees on private property, effectively improving home values and reducing energy bills. Educational workshops conducted by the Coalition's team of expert arborists will further extend congressional funding by teaching participants how to properly plant, prune, and maintain trees to ensure long-term urban forest health. The Congressionally Directed Spending request meets the goals and objectives set forth by the Coalition. Cleveland OH $1,500,000 Website Letter
Senator Brown OH Agriculture, Rural Development, Food and Drug Administration, and Related Agencies City of Lousville The City of Louisville, Ohio, has strategically identified revitalization of its downtown area as critical to the growth and vitality of the city. A multi-year collaboration between city government and the Louisville Public Library, this effort has the potential to transform the immediate area and the city as a whole by further promoting mixed-use (residential, incubator, business) development of the downtown area while considering the inclusion of shared space and infrastructure for the city and library. Additionally, the project will create a park area to be used for community events with an outdoor amphitheater on the green. Given funding constraints, exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic, the project is being considered in phases and includes enhancements to the Main Street Corridor, specifically widening of sidewalks, improvement of traffic flow and environmental improvements to include the installation of various types of vegetation; improvement of the Bauman Court alley way, to include outdoor seating areas, public art, lighting, brick and lawn surfaces, fire pits and a welcoming archway. The improvement to the Main St. Corridor and Bauman Court will increase safety of the area as Main St. is a significant source of heavy vehicle and pedestrian traffic. The planned improvement will make the area more walkable while educating motorists on the designated crosswalks. Existing sidewalks are too narrow to allow for comfortable walking and outdoor seating in front of businesses and restaurants. The added improvement to Bauman Court will create a safe outdoor gathering place that will be used year-round providing much needed support to local businesses. It will also create an incentive for property owners with vacant buildings to make needed repairs and market the space. The tree canopy along Main St. and Bauman Court will provide areas for pedestrians to enjoy shade while also aiding stormwater and having other environmental benefits. The development of the greenspace controlled by the public library will provide an outdoor experience for the whole community. The amphitheater, open area and playgrounds will create an atmosphere for family entertainment and recreation. The mix-used facility will improve the downtown economy by having shared space for the library and public services. The creation of space for incubators will permit the combining of resources to assist startup businesses by providing needed support with no upfront costs for space.

Senator Brown OH Agriculture, Rural Development, Food and Drug Administration, and Related Agencies Ohio Energy and Advanced Manufacturing Center The overarching goal of this project is to provide monitoring of agricultural runoff by sampling and analysis to provide data to assess the effectiveness of various treatment technologies so that farmers and advisors can make informed decisions that will ultimately result in improved water quality, including of the Great Lakes. There are various government programs available to help farmers design and pay for management approaches to prevent and control Non-Point Source (NPS) pollution. For example, over 40% of section 319 Clean Water Act grants have been used to control NPS pollution from working farms and ranches (https://www.epa.gov/sites/production/files/2015-09/documents/ag_runoff_fact_sheet.pdf). In addition, many programs funded by states or by the U.S. Department of Agriculture provide cost-sharing, technical assistance, and economic incentives to implement NPS pollution management practices. Many local organizations also work to support technologies and practices to reduce water quality impacts caused by farming practices. The Soil and Water Conservation Districts play an important role in this in Ohio communities, and often have strong connections with farmers who are trying to implement conservation practices. While there are various incentives for farmers to make changes needed to reduce NPS pollution, there are often not methods in place for them to measure the effectiveness of their changes. Measuring the impact of the changes is important in order to assess which methods are most effective. This information will help farmers realize the effectiveness of their actions and will help to motivate other farmers to do the same. Once the mobile sampling platforms are built, they can continue to be used after the grant period ends, allowing this work to continue to generate more information to inform decisions on best practices. The platforms will become the property of the OEAMC and be available as a resource for future projects. Lima OH $263,000 Website Letter

Senator Brown OH Commerce, Justice, Science, and Related Agencies Cleveland Rape Crisis Center Cleveland Rape Crisis Center is working to increase its capacity to serve victims of sexual violence. This request builds on funding they have received from the State of Ohio capital budget and from private sources to expand our presence in the Clark-Fulton neighborhood of Cleveland. The space they currently have is inadequate for the amount of victims and type of services they need to offer there. They need to increase the ability for victims to access all of the services in this location, as well as provide training to other professionals in the community about how best to serve victims of sexual violence. This request would allow Cleveland Rape Crisis Center to establish the larger capacity at the Clark-Fulton location to provide more services to more victims of sexual violence, more training to professionals and community members, and offer all of that in a trauma-informed, safe and caring environment.

Senator Brown OH Commerce, Justice, Science, and Related Agencies LSS CHOICES for Victims of Domestic Violence This request is for general operating support for CHOICES shelter. The shelter provides safety for individuals and families fleeing their homes due to intimate partner violence. With a capacity for 120 people, the shelter has been at or above capacity since December 2020. To address the increased demand for shelter services, CHOICES recently completed an expansion of the shelter funded completely by private donations. The expanded space adds 24 beds and will be available for use by the end of June 2021. While in shelter, victims are offered case management, counseling, recreation and support groups as well as legal advocacy. Individual and group counseling is offered for children along with social and recreational activities. CHOICES shelter has onsite medical and dental care as well as a kennel so pets may accompany families into shelter. Federal funding to CHOICES decreased by $152,937 from FY 20 to FY 21 and will decrease again in FY 22 by $124,862.  The cuts in federal funding come as demand for service has never been so high. While CHOICES raised funds to expand the size of the shelter without public funds, operating expenses due to the increased occupancy have not been secured. This request replaces lost federal funds and allows for operating expenses, increased staffing, food, utilities, for the shelter expansion. Worthington OH $750,000 Website Letter

Senator Brown OH Commerce, Justice, Science, and Related Agencies City of Barberton This request is for the partial funding of equipment and funding associated with the Barberton Justice Center and City Hall (“Project”), which has been desperately needed by the City of Barberton (“City”) and surrounding communities for decades. The current justice center and City Hall has been in operation since 1953. The current facility houses three distinct components: (i) the Barberton Municipal Court, (ii) the City’s police station and jail, and (iii) the City’s administrative and legislative offices ("City Hall"). While the City Hall, police station and jail serve the residents of the City (26,098 constituents), the Barberton Municipal Court also serves the residents of the Cities of Green, Norton, and New Franklin, the Village of Clinton, and Coventry and Copley Townships (107,507 constituents, including the City). Almost immediately upon the construction of the current facility in 1953, the City recognized that it was unfit for its intended use. Barberton City Council currently holds its meetings in one of the courtrooms, which is ill-equipped for such a purpose. Additionally, the police station and jail are currently undersized and lack adequate, functional space for inmates, victims, witnesses, training, records and officer workspace. The jail is routinely found to be in non-compliance by the Ohio Department of Rehabilitation and Corrections’ annual inspection due to overcrowding, inadequate security, and lack of proper HVAC, but is grandfathered from current regulations. Overall, the entire facility is only marginally compliant for handicapped users, and the facility’s HVAC, electrical, plumbing and building shell are obsolete. The Project would equip the Barberton Municipal Court with modern 21st century courtrooms and efficient space for the Barberton Clerk of Courts. The police station and jail would be constructed to meet current jail standards and provide all constituents who interact with the police with needed safety and security. Additionally, the City Hall space would provide the City with new, modern offices, and a dedicated space for City Council to hold its public meetings. All three components of the facility would benefit by being constructed following the recent pandemic that will greatly impact the way buildings are constructed for the health of those who work or visit the facility. It is anticipated that the Justice Center will be constructed on a site on land located in Hopocan Ave. in the City that the City purchased using $500,000 in State of Ohio capital budget funds. The State has also awarded the City an additional $500,000 in capital budget funds, and the Barberton Municipal Court has placed approximately $2,000,000 in reserve out of it court fees fund. While the total cost of the Project as a whole is approximately $16,000,000, approximately $2,000,000 of the cost is necessary to acquire necessary furnishings, equipment and technology for the Justice Center. Specifically, the police department and jail portion of the facility will need to be equipped with security and safety equipment for use by the Barberton Police Department. The police department and Jail will also be equipped with both basic technology, as well as surveillance and recording technology for the benefit of both the police and inmates. The courtrooms will also be equipped with audio-visual technology that will allow modern trials and court proceedings to take place, and to allow for the courts to take advantage of a more digital world. The entire complex will be outfitted with security and safety equipment and technology to ensure visitors that are entering the facility cannot do harm to the other visitors, staff or safety forces within the building. Of the $2,000,000 in furnishings, equipment and technology estimated to be needed for the new facility, the City anticipates that over $900,000 will be spent specifically towards the safety and security equipment needed to operate safely and securely. While the need for the new facility is great, the City is unfortunately in a difficult position in terms of identifying the necessary funding for the Project. Major employers, such as Babcock and Wilcox, have exited the City or closed their doors, thereby depleting the City’s tax base. Additionally, the pandemic has had a devastating effect on the City, which was already struggling from those business losses. However, the requested assistance of $900,000 towards the equipment and technology needed to operate the new facility safely and securely would greatly assist in moving the Project forward and making it affordable for the City.

Senator Brown OH Commerce, Justice, Science, and Related Agencies City of Lorain, Ohio The City of Lorain is seeking $400,000 in congressionally-directed DOJ Byrne Grant funding for personnel, gang interdiction, and community policing training. Lorain, already beset by violent drug gangs, gun violence, and killings, is now facing worsened socioeconomic challenges related to the COVID-19 pandemic. In response, the Lorain Police Department is aiming to boost its community policing initiatives with additional personnel, training, and gang/drug market interdiction in its most challenged neighborhoods. Street gangs in Lorain present significant challenges to the safety of our neighborhoods and the well-being of children, youth, and families. To begin to break the cycles of gang crime and violence, it is critical to build comprehensive solutions across a spectrum of prevention, intervention, and suppression strategies. The City of Lorain is continuing its efforts to empower youth to avoid gang-related activities and violence in the neighborhoods, schools and streets of the community.; Lorain seeks to turn people away from gangs and drugs, by offering collaborative community policing approaches, after-school activities, mentoring and role model programs, gang intervention efforts, character building activities, family involvement strategies, recreational and sports activities, and other efforts designed to guide young people in a positive direction. When coupled with a tough and proactive approach to bad actors, illegal gang activities, and drug market and major drug dealer intervention, Lorain seeks to reduce violent crime and threats to public safety in this community. This program will involve the dedication of additional law enforcement officers to neighborhood-based community policing and engagement with neighborhood, civic, religious community, non-profit, social service, and educational communities. The program will coordinate providers and services to support families and youth in gang prevention efforts, obtain and deploy training resources for both law officers and community organizations, upgrade database and GIS technologies to track violent crime and gang activities and deploy resources, and research and deploy best practices in gun violence strategies at the community level.

Senator Brown OH Commerce, Justice, Science, and Related Agencies Cuyahoga County Requested funding will support one year of operating costs for the Cuyahoga County (Mental Health and Addiction) Diversion Center, which is called the Cuyahoga County Diversion Center. The Center provides a solution to manage the twin problems of a rising jail population and the growing number of inmates with mental health disorders and addiction issues, while additionally tackling the matter of equity among Cuyahoga residents. The Diversion Center confronts both challenges an innovative approach helping improve lives by treating what is often the underlying impetus for some criminal behavior(s), as well as directly reducing jail population. This approach ensures those who need treatment receive it in the most appropriate setting and lowers the inmate population safely by working with law enforcement and the justice system to redirect individuals better off in the care and environment of community health professionals. Officers responding to a low level, non-violent crime can take the individual, who they identify as having a mental health and/or addiction issue, directly to the Center in lieu of charging them and taking them to our Cuyahoga County Jail. Individuals receive dedicated treatment rather than entering the criminal justice system at all for the offense, and have an opportunity to be a productive member of the community through their long term recovery. The Cuyahoga County Diversion Program includes: Crisis Intervention Training (CIT) for all Cuyahoga County law enforcement officers and dispatchers. The CIT is an already established and approved national program for which the Cuyahoga ADAMHS Board currently conducts Countywide training. As part of the ADAMHS Contract for the Cuyahoga Diversion Program, the ADAMHS Board is significantly increasing their training schedule and have added three more dedicated training staff positions, with the expectation that all law enforcement officers and dispatchers within the county have the opportunity to receive this training during the Contract period. The current CIT training has incorporated best practices such as those reflected in the Bexar, TX CIT training model. A 24/7/365 call-in help line that police call for assistance when responding to an individual with SMI, SMI/SA, or SA/A needs. The help line assists the officer in providing an appropriate interventional response with the individual and provides support to the officer in making the decision on whether that individual is a good candidate for the Diversion Center. The hot line staff, made up of behavioral health professionals, is also able to make otherwise appropriate recommendations to the officer (i.e. take the individual to the local psychiatric care hospital, engage the local response team of behavior health professionals (Crisis Response Team, etc), and also is the entity who calls the Diversion Center to make the notification when an officer is bringing a new client.

Senator Brown OH Transportation, Housing and Urban Development, and Related Agencies Ashtabula County Airport Authority "The intent of this project is to design and install new security fence near the terminal building and new wildlife exclusion fencing around the airfield at Northeast Ohio Regional Airport (HZY). HZY is surrounded by forests and wetlands that act as potential wildlife attractants. A Wildlife Hazard Site Visit (WHSV) conducted at HZY by USDA APHIS Wildlife Services (WS) personnel in April 2020 lists coyotes, white-tailed deer, raccoon and muskrat among the list of observed species at the Airport. Per the WHSV, ""WS recommends that KHZY pursue the procurement of a perimeter fence that is designed to exclude all hazardous terrestrial wildlife species from the AOA. A 10 foot high chain link fence with barbed wire outriggers and a 4 foot buried apron to exclude digging animals is the preferred alternative. This type of fence meets FAA guidelines in Certalert No. 16-03 (Appendix 1). An adequate fence placed so that its perimeter can be monitored via motor vehicle regularly would do more for excluding deer and other terrestrial animals from the airfield than other measures."" The entire report that summarizes the Wildlife Hazard Site Visit in more detail is attached as supporting documentation for this funding request. The fence will be designed and installed per FAA standards. Generally, the higher the fence barrier, the more difficult and time consuming to breach the barrier. The presence of barbed wire at the top of the fence makes the fence more difficult to climb and burying the bottom of the fencing prevents animals from crawling under the fence line. Additionally, signage will be installed along the fence line to indicate secured areas and presence of security patrols, alarms, and monitoring systems. " Jefferson OH $1,874,000 Website Letter

Senator Brown OH Transportation, Housing and Urban Development, and Related Agencies Greater Cleveland Regional Transit Authority (GCRT "GCRTA's heavy and light rail cars are 36 and 39 years old, and have exceeded their useful life. They require an increasing amount of time and money to be properly maintained and ready for service. Due to their age, replacement parts are difficult to obtain and the technology and components within the cars are obsolete. This $5 million request will provide additional funding for this program to replace GCRTA's two aging fleets of rail cars. It will result in a common rail car which will be safer and more reliable for our 25,000 daily rail passengers and the hundreds of thousands of occasional riders who rely on our rail service to attend major community and sporting events. Replacing our rail cars will promote increased ridership and encourage private transit oriented development along our 33 mile rail system. The design and specification for the new rail cars started on March 2, 2020 and has been completed. We are currently in the procurement process to select a rail car manufacturer with the Request for Proposal issued on February 21, 2021 with Proposals received on May 19, 2021 and contract award targeted for October 26, 2021. The initial car is to be supplied 24 months after award with first group of cars to arrive 42 months after award. GCRTA has the funding to place an initial order of 18 rail cars and our procurement will have options for 42 additional cars. We will exercise those options in groups of 6-12 cars as additional funds are obtained. We are aggressively seeking additional funding from federal, state and local sources to fully fund the program." Cleveland OH $5,000,000 Website Letter
Senator Brown OH Transportation, Housing and Urban Development, and Related Agencies Akron – Canton Regional Airport Authority This project involves the removal and/or relocation of four (4) CAK "hot spots" on the airfield: Taxiway J, H, K, and C. These taxiway environments have historically contained a potential risk of collision or runway incursion, and where heightened attention by pilots and drivers has been necessary. All of the affected taxiways represent a non-standard entrance/exit from the runway environment, and some pose a restricted visual angle for aircraft operating to and from the terminal environment. These taxiways are in a high energy location and pose an inadvertent directional turn for aircraft returning to the terminal area to cross back into runway environment. These taxiways have been a consistent topic of discussion with the FAA for removal. The scope also includes the development of expanding the general aviation ramp for one of our fixed base operators, who is running out of room to accommodate larger aircraft adjacent to two of the hot spot locations (Taxiways J &;H).

Senator Brown OH Transportation, Housing and Urban Development, and Related Agencies Summit County The current N. Main Street Bridge over the Cuyahoga River, also known as the High Level Bridge, is a three span, steel truss structure and was built in 1948. The bridge is 909 feet long, 67 feet wide, and spans 220 feet above the Cuyahoga River Valley and the Summit Metro Parks High Bridge Trail. It carries four lanes and two pedestrian sidewalks. In the latest 2020 bridge inspection, the General Appraisal is 5A out of 9 and the Sufficiency Rating is 37.3 out of 100. The structure is fracture critical. A fracture critical bridge means that if one member or part of the bridge fails, the entire bridge fails. This is the same classification of bridge as the I-35W Bridge in Minnesota that suffered a catastrophic collapse. A new bridge will be constructed with "redundancy" built in, so in the case of a beam failure the entire bridge would not be at risk. The bridge requires frequent inspections and an annual in-depth inspection. The Sufficiency Rating and General Appraisal has been consistently dropping over the last several inspections. Costly repair and maintenance jobs will be required if the bridge is not replaced within the 10-year time frame. Continued maintenance and rehabilitation of the bridge is not cost effective, as shown by the Life Cycle Cost Analysis performed by Richland Engineering. The average annual revenue for the Summit County Engineer's office is $15 million and the necessary cost to design and construct and replacement bridge is $40 million, which is 2.5 times the County Engineer's annual revenue. Even painting the current bridge to prevent further deterioration is estimated to be $5 million, one third of the County Engineer's annual budget. The current estimated planning costs for this bridge, the amount we are asking for in this request, is $8.2 million, which is more than half of the County Engineer's annual budget. Designing and replacing the High Level Bridge simply cannot be done on local funds alone. Eventually this bridge, that connects the two largest cities in Summit County, will have to be load rated, restricting commercial traffic, at best, or closed, at worst, as local funds are not enough to keep up with the needed repairs.

Senator Brown OH Transportation, Housing and Urban Development, and Related Agencies The City of South Euclid Mayfield Road (US322) Signalization Project The proposed project will upgrade and replace the obsolete traffic signal equipment at seven (7) existing signalized intersections on Mayfield Road, between Warrensville Center Road and the east corporation line with the City of Lyndhurst, in the City of South Euclid. The project will provide a properly coordinated traffic signal system that will greatly improve vehicular traffic efficiency, thereby reducing congestion, reducing air pollution, and improving air quality, and will also improve emergency response time with the provision of first responder preemption. Mayfield Road (US322) is the vital east-west axis in the City providing linkage between the community, cultural, and commercial districts located on the road within the city and to University Circle to the west and I-271 to the east. The signal systems on Mayfield Road in Cleveland Heights to the west and Lyndhurst and Mayfield Heights to the east have been recently upgraded and provide effective coordination. However the signal system on Mayfield road in South Euclid was replaced in the mid-1990s and the equipment is outdated and requires frequent maintenance. It is also not well coordinated. With the installation of modern signal equipment the entire corridor will then be coordinated, thereby benefitting the residents of South Euclid and the surrounding communities of Lyndhurst, Mayfield Heights, and Cleveland Heights. Pedestrian accessibility and safety will be enhanced with the provision of Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) compliant pedestrian signals. curb ramps, and crosswalks at all intersections. Traffic control pavement markings and signage will also be replaced. South Euclid OH $1,811,000 Website Letter
Senator Brown OH Transportation, Housing and Urban Development, and Related Agencies Akron – Canton Regional Airport Authority This project includes upgrading sections of Taxiway F shoulder, electrical infrastructure, and drainage to FAA standards. There is currently a "Taxiway F Mill &; Fill Overlay" Project that will be funded at 90%. The Airport will need to cover the remaining 10%. Within this scope we requested to have the FAA: 1) incorporate Taxiway F shoulder and related electrical work on an important section this taxiway to meet FAA standards. The work involved altering the slopes of Taxiway F shoulders, which impacted electrical conduits by requiring the conduits to be lowered. 2) We also requested the project scope to include a drainage and grading upgrade along Taxiway F to fix a pavement ponding issue. Ponding is a safety concern and bird attractant, which we want to avoid in the airfield environment. The scope for this 2nd item included improving the grades and drainage of a nearby grass area to allow the water to drain from the pavement properly, improving safety and meeting FAA standards. The FAA refused to allow these items in the scope, claiming both are not part of a "mill and fill" pavement project. Both efforts were advised by the FAA to be included as part of a future AIP grant.

The project will reimagine the corridor by reducing drive lanes and expanding multimodal opportunities to create equitable improvements. Building upon recent progress made in adjacent neighborhoods, the City aims to attract investment and new businesses to strengthen the commercial district and create jobs. The improvements will upgrade access and connections to businesses, rapid transit/bus routes, and underserved/diverse neighborhoods. This community-driven reinvestment project will add vibrancy, calm traffic, improve pedestrian and cyclist safety, strengthen connections, and address the longstanding need to build a safer multi-modal transportation network.

Senator Brown OH Transportation, Housing and Urban Development, and Related Agencies The City of Akron The proposed project includes the complete reconstruction of North Main Street between the limits of the All America Bridge and the High Level Bridge. This corridor links Akron from our downtown to the North Hill neighborhood to the City of Cuyahoga Falls. It will tie into Summit County Engineer's Office critical High Level Bridge project (North Main Street Phase 2) which is also being submitted for appropriation funding. This project will transform the North Main Street corridor from a car-centric sea of pavement into a true complete street. The current corridor cross section includes up to six lanes for traffic and a relatively small sidewalk. The vehicular traffic Main Street carries does not justify this many lanes. The proposed cross section will include one lane of traffic each direction, a center two way left turn lane, lanes for either parking, bus pull off or other use, bike lanes, sidewalks, and buffers. This will better serve all users. The scope will require the complete reconstruction of the right-of-way including full depth asphalt pavement, concrete curbs and sidewalks, underground utility reconstruction as needed, LED lighting, interconnected traffic signals, wayfinding signage, street trees and other aesthetic touches.

Senator Brown OH Transportation, Housing and Urban Development, and Related Agencies METRO Regional Transit Authority METRO will be constructing a 90,000 sf maintenance and operations facility on its existing property located at 416 Kenmore in Akron. This is a facility that is desperately needed to support the changing mobility needs of Summit County. The new building (shown below) will house our operations and dispatch needs as well as provide the opportunity to maintain our existing and future fleet. The facility design incorporates right-sized bus maintenance bays, parts-storage that aligns with our agency's six-sigma processes, improves parts-inventory control, and integrates technology to support smart vehicle monitoring and dispatch connectivity. Most importantly, our will ensure safe service processes for our growing fleet of electric and natural gas vehicles, supporting our transition to an all alternative fuel fleet. The need for a new facility was identified six years ago in a facility needs assessment, when it was identified that the existing maintenance building was well-past its useful life and was creating an issue for our ability to maintain our fleet in a state of good repair. Several years after this determination, the facility is now critically deficient in space and technology to support our future needs and should be immediately replaced. While this project has been on hold due to funding challenges, several efforts have kept the process moving forward. The first was the purchase and cleanup of a former junkyard site adjacent to our existing employee parking lot, which will ensure adequate space to construct a facility without impeding current operations. The second was having a review of existing architecture and engineering plans to ensure they meet our evolving needs. The third was the verification of need for and commitment of our Board of Trustees to support future operational needs with modern and sustainable facilities as part of our 2020 Strategic Plan. Understanding the urgency of the need for a new facility, our Board of Trustees has approved moving forward with final design for the facility in April 2021 and expect that this stage of design will conclude by August 2022. Once funding has been acquired, construction is expected to commence in the first quarter of 2023 with the new facility becoming operational by early 2025. At this point, we have local funding commitment for 20% of project design and construction. We are looking for federal support for the remainder of project design of $2,000,000. This project was approved in STIP through the ODOT 2021-24 process as well as in the local MPO's TIP (2021-24 –; project ID 104366). Akron OH $2,000,000 Website Letter

Senator Brown OH Transportation, Housing and Urban Development, and Related Agencies Case Western Reserve University The Fixing America's Surface Transportation (FAST) Act authorized the University Transportation Center (UTC) program. In 2016, the US Department of Transportation conducted a competitive process for selecting 35 University Transportation Centers, including five national centers. During the competition, the department did not award a national center for ""reducing congestion"" nor did it award a national center for ""improving the durability and extending the life of transportation infrastructure,"" two of the primary focus areas outlined by Congress in the FAST Act. To rectify this situation, Congress appropriated $15 million in the FY 2018 Omnibus Appropriation Bill for two national UTCs, one for ""reducing congestion,"" and one for ""improving the durability and extending the life of transportation infrastructure."" When the FAST Act expired last year, Congress extended the authorization by one year, and in doing so extended authorization to fund the 35 University Transportation Centers. However, the USDOT has recently indicated that because the two new national centers were a product of additional appropriations and not a result of the FAST Act, funding from the extension cannot be provided for continuing those two centers unless Congress were to specifically appropriate more money. The above request is to make sure that the two national centers continue to receive funding, just as the other university transportation centers, until the Congress reauthorizes the FAST Act and a new competition for the UTC program can begin. The gap in funding the two National UTCs would compromise their sustainability and pose a risk to their critical roles in leading the nation towards more durable transportation infrastructure and a more productive roadway system much needed for the competitiveness of the U.S. economy.

Senator Brown OH Transportation, Housing and Urban Development, and Related Agencies Eastgate Regional Council of Governments "The BDM Warren Steel property is a 1000 acre brownfield that previously hosted steel-making operations. Today, this property represents one of the largest single areas of land in Ohio within city limits available for industrial development. The property is located just a few miles from the new Ultium Battery Manufacturing Plant and the Lordstown Motors Manufacturing Plant in Lordstown, As such, it is a highly valued property with great potential for near-term economic development, especially as the e-mobility supply chain builds out. The property, however, lacks clear and direct truck access to Ohio State Route 45, Lordstown, and the Ohio Turnpike, thus limiting the near-term development potential. This request is for funds to build a new concrete-base roadway between the BDM Property and Ohio State Route 45, a distance of just over one mile. This would greatly reduce the truck travel time and distance from the BDM site to several Lordstown manufacturing locations and the Ohio Turnpike.

Senator Brown OH Transportation, Housing and Urban Development, and Related Agencies Canfield Township This project site is located on Summit Drive on the east side of Canfield Township. Summit Drive is connected to the very busy 5-lane US 224 arterial where there is significant existing commercial development. The project involves reconstructing the existing 2-lane Township-owned and maintained asphalt road which measures down to 18-FT in width with no shoulders, widening the apron off of US 224, and widening the road to the present County design standards for this class of local road (20-FT plus 2-FT extra of curb/gutter on each side making 24-FT wide total), relocating and improving the drainage along the road (necessary for the road widening), and constructing a new multi-use asphalt paved trail alongside the road to offer the pedestrians in this neighborhood a safer path to travel rather than on the road. The present narrow width of the road has presented a safety concern to the residents for some time now from a motorist perspective alone. There have been traffic accidents on this road involving larger vehicles which cannot adequately pass each other due to the narrow width of the road. One accident was with a school bus. It is difficult to safely have a typical automobile and a large utility or service truck pass one another without nearly driving off the edge of the pavement. This road will also likely see an increase in vehicular traffic in the future due to additional projected residential development towards its southern terminus of this road (presently being developed for more residential construction). Canfield Township is one of the few areas in our region where residential development continues to occur. In terms of funding the Township will plan to utilize its funding allocation from the ABC District to help pay for the storm sewer work related to this project valued at $512,000 (construction), and the Township is asking for the remaining balance from this FY 22 funding allocation request ($1,193,830).

Senator Brown OH Transportation, Housing and Urban Development, and Related Agencies Woodland Cemetery Woodland Cemetery was established in 1841 for the express purpose of creating a resplendent cemetery landscape to support a rapidly growing city. Since its very beginning, Woodland has been the conservator of Dayton history and the culture of its people.

Senator Brown OH Transportation, Housing and Urban Development, and Related Agencies Village of Lowellville The Village of Lowellville is intending to improve their 12.88-acres of unimproved land located west of West Water Street south of the CSX RR and north of the Mahoning River into a riverfront setting. With the recent removal of the low-head dam in the Mahoning River and the Village being under contract to build a new canoe launch and a new public restroom facility in this very same location, the Village is poised to develop the remaining surrounding property into a beautiful riverfront park. This improvement project is aligned well with the Village's Comprehensive Plan and the recent Mahoning River Corridor Plan by our Metropolitan Planning Organization's (Eastgate Council of Governments). This 12.88-acre parcel is in a mapped floodplain and has nothing constructed on it. The Village purchased this parcel for one day creating this Park. Adjacent to this 12.88-acres and along the north edge of the Mahoning River is another adjoining 1.52-acres of land that is privately-owned and also is entirely inside of a mapped floodplain and is undevelopable for building purposes. The 1.52-acres is land-locked. The Village has already coordinated with this private property owner and the private property owner is committed to donating this 1.52- acres of land for the benefit of the creation of the future Park contingent upon the Village receiving the necessary funding to construct the Riverfront Park. Both parcels (together totaling 14.4-acres) are accessible to the Village's West Water Street road right-of-way which connects to the Village's central business district (downtown). This area of West Water Street has the potential to be the catalyst the Village needs to redevelop all of West Water Street (a long-range plan of the Village). The Village's Riverfront Park is planned to be utilized by the Village residents and all residents and visitors in the region. The new park will serve the following purposes: recreation, education, conservation, and will secondarily help attract more people to the Village's nearby downtown area.

Senator Cantwell WA Interior, Environment, and Related Agencies City of Bothell Replacement and improvement of outdated, insufficient City of Bothell Sewer and Water Utility infrastructure will be addressed by funding of this request. Sewer Lift Station #1 is currently undersized, functioning poorly, has limited wet well storage, and has no space at its current location to increase lift station capacity. Construction of a lift station bypass main will allow the majority of the sewer drainage basin to be served by gravity with only the remaining adjacent neighborhood (Valhalla neighborhood) to be served by the lift station. Inadequate 60-year old water and sewer mains in the surrounding Valhalla neighborhood will also be replaced to improve system functionality. The asbestos cement water mains have degraded, become soft, and have failed at least three times in the last five years. Replacement of these water mains with new ductile iron water main will reduce the risk of a water main breaks, service disruption, and better comply with Fire Fighting and Drinking Water Standard requirements. The concrete sewer mains are cracked, poorly connected, have root intrusion, and have significant groundwater Inflow & Infiltration. Replacement of these sewer mains with new PVC pipe will eliminate root intrusion and Inflow and Infiltration associated with old, poorly performing sewer mains.

To reduce these maintenance and reliability concerns, the Alliance plans to replace these belt filter presses with screw presses or centrifuges. The new equipment will have an added benefit in that it will produce biosolid material that requires less truck hauling. A federal investment will free local resources to complete additional upgrades to the SCTP as part of its $55 million capital improvement plan. Clark County WA $2,000,000 Website Letter
Senator Cantwell WA Interior, Environment, and Related Agencies Shoalwater Bay Indian Tribe of the Shoalwater Bay This request for funding will provide for the implementation of the Shoalwater Bay Tribe’s community relocation project to construct roads/utility infrastructure on the 4,000 acres purchased by the Tribe. All of their housing and government buildings are just 15 feet above sea level on the coastline. Partial federal funding, and a tribal relationship with the Army Corps of Engineers, has led to construction of an embankment in the tidal zone portion of their Reservation, but is continuosly washing away. A single tsunami event would take out every home, the government, their economic development opportunities, and what defines them as Shoalwater people. The Tribe needs financial and technical support to build the infrastructure we need to move uphill. Based on erosion and other projections, this needs to happen immediately. The land purchase has been completed by the Tribe. Now that we have the land, we are ready for construction of the road/utility infrastructure. This first requested investment is for Phase 1A for pre-construction; roads; sewer; water; and utilities. Pacific WA $2,500,000 Website Letter

Senator Cantwell WA Interior, Environment, and Related Agencies Clark Regional Wastewater District This request seeks to accelerate eliminating septic systems in one of the District’s service area’s lower income neighborhoods and one of greatest environmental concern, while providing additional financial assistance to homeowners that are in the greatest need. Federal aid will support the installation of 3,700’ of 8” gravity pipes that connects to the District’s wastewater services in the Curtin Creek area—which has a history of failing septic systems and proximity to the Curtin Creek Watershed, a tributary of the critical Salmon Creek Watershed. Completion of the project will enable 72 properties to move away from their septic systems and connect to the community’s wastewater infrastructure. Once homes are connected to the new infrastructure, property owners are responsible for a subsidized cost to install the infrastructure which, even with financial offsets from the District’s SEP, averages approximately $31,000 and is offered as a low-interest loan that can be repaid over 5-10 years. These costs can be out of reach for many working-class families; however, a federal investment would enable the homeowner’s obligation in the Curtin Creek area to fall to approximately $6,100 that similarly can be repaid over a 5-to-10-year period. Providing these additional savings will allow more property owners to move their homes off septic systems providing benefit not only for them but also for the greater community.

For each block, conveyance needs have been assessed and bioretention facilities will be located based on physical constraints and volume of runoff. Each bioretention cell will function in two ways, as a treatment facility and as a conveyance system. Each conveyance system will be designed to meet SPU’s 2004 Comprehensive Drainage Plan level of service for managing stormwater. King County WA $2,500,000 Website Letter
Senator Cantwell WA Interior, Environment, and Related Agencies City of Mukilteo The proposal recreates a waterfront estuary with a promenade on filled heavy industrial land.

Public access to a publicly-owned shoreline area on Possession Sound is established, consistent with the State Shoreline Management Act. Snohomish County WA $2,500,000 Website Letter
Senator Cantwell WA Interior, Environment, and Related Agencies City of Edmonds The project seeks to recover extremely valuable lost foraging habitat for juvenile salmon to help support Pacific Northwest salmon recovery, and subsequently, the Southern Resident Orca population in Puget Sound as well. It helps increase salmon populations available for Tribal fishing. These are readily achievable “precursor” projects, constituting components that must be done before/as part of the ultimate Willow Creek daylighting/Edmonds Marsh restoration project. They are key to the ultimate objective of restoring a fully functioning saltwater tidal marsh by improving the quality of stormwater runoff entering the Marsh from surrounding properties, streets and SR 104. With improved quality of the stormwater entering the Marsh, together with eventual daylighting of Willow Creek, a healthy saltwater marsh/estuary will be restored, which will both contribute to improved water quality of Puget Sound, as well as re-create rearing habitat for juvenile salmon, including juvenile Chinook salmon, the preferred prey of the endangered Southern Resident Orca. The 28-acre plus Edmonds marsh has been sealed off form Puget Sound by a barrier which prevent fish use of the marsh complex and which restricts the salt water conditions necessary to support a healthy marsh complex critical to juvenile foraging salmon. The Willow Creek Daylighting and Edmonds Marsh Restoration Project seeks to restore a lost estuarian marsh in the heart of Edmonds. Currently the marsh drains out to the Puget Sound via a limited diameter pipe, which prevents fish entry into the marsh and restricts the natural tidal exchange that supports a healthy estuarine marsh system. The City seeks to restore the open channel flow in order to restore the marsh habitat areas and, for the first time in over half a century, return this 28-acre habitat area for fish use.

Senator Cardin MD Agriculture, Rural Development, Food and Drug Administration, and Related Agencies Chesapeake Bay Foundation I request $2.184 million in Congressionally Directed Spending to support the Pequea Creek Watershed Restoration Plan in Pennsylvania in the Susquehanna River Basin. The Susquehanna River, which flows 440 miles from New York to Maryland and through Pennsylvania, drains nearly 92% of the watershed. Streams within the sub-watershed were identified as the optimal areas in which to concentrate restoration efforts. Within each of these, land use analysis, hydrological modeling, and detailed mapping identified the specific locations of deficiencies, and prescribed a combination of best management practices (BMPs) to address those conditions imperiling aquatic life. Each of these agriculture practices requires technical design and planning expertise, as well as outreach and education to assure compliance with various regulations, and to increase participation in conservation programs. Monitoring and modeling is also needed to assess impacts of BMP implementation, and direct ongoing efforts to improve soil and water quality. In addition to targeted stream efforts, watershed-wide goals are proposed, as well as monitoring to track progress and community outreach. Pequea PA $2,184,000 Website Letter

Senator Cardin MD Commerce, Justice, Science, and Related Agencies The Nature Conservancy When restaurants shut down due to COVID-19, Maryland oyster growers were faced with the possibility of destroying their product and potential closure of their businesses. Nongovernmental organizations partnered to create the Supporting Oyster Aquaculture and Restoration (SOAR) Program to support the growers by purchasing mature oysters and utilizing them in local oyster rehabilitation projects, with regulatory support from the Maryland Department of Natural Resources and scientific advice from NOAA. To build an economically-resilient oyster aquaculture industry and rebuild imperiled oyster reefs in the Chesapeake Bay, I request $1 million in Congressionally Directed Spending to expand The Nature Conservancy’s SOAR Program in Maryland. The federal funding would provide $350,000 for purchase and transport of approximately 1 million additional oysters from oyster farmers that will help restore at least 10 additional acres of reefs. $150,000 is for planning to better guide and integrate the aquaculture industry’s role in oyster restoration.

Senator Cardin MD Labor, Health and Human Services, Education, and Related Agencies Ashley Addiction Treatment Center I request $1.15 million in Congressionally Directed Spending to support the Cecil County Mental Health Initiative under Ashley Addiction Treatment. According to the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA), Cecil County is a geographic mental health professional shortage area. Given this staffing need, the Cecil County Mental Health Initiative will be instrumental in increasing access to mental health services for patients in need. The pandemic may have increased the need for mental health services, particularly for the uninsured or underinsured individual who may otherwise not have access to treatment. Funding for this project would allow Ashley Addiction Center to fill mental health staffing shortages in Cecil County to provide additional mental health services to this community, including for individuals involved in the justice system. Allocated funds would support salaries of full time employees and associated infrastructure support costs. This project would serve as a community asset by enabling Cecil Community to better address access to mental health services. Cecil County MD $1,150,000 Website Letter
