Resources for the District
As your Representative, I will do everything within my power to bring resources into our district.
Grants and Funding
Unlike City Councillors, Community Commissioners, and other elected offices, State Representatives in Alabama DO NOT receive discretionary funds to support local organizations or sponsor events/programs. (Those aforementioned leaders only receive some funds).
State Representatives only receive a very limited amount of education funding to specifically support local academic/education programs.
While I wish I could help sponsor and support every program, organization, event, etc. in the district, I simply do not receive the state funds to do so.
I am strongly committed to:
- Sharing with you grants and funding resources from other organizations and entities.
- When eligible, applying for grants or seeking funding for our district.
- Advocating for funding in the state budgets for programs and initiatives that benefit our district.
If you have a financial need for your program, organization, or event, you can click here to submit this form and I will explore what – if any – resources exist. I cannot guarantee funding but I will do my best!
