Programmatic Requests

Thank you for your interest in placing a programmatic request with Senator Kaine’s office.

Please note that programmatic requests are different from congressionally directed spending requests and therefore require a different form and review process. 

Programmatic requests fund an authorized federal program or agency at a specific level. Members can also request bill or report language directing a federal agency to implement a program in a specific way. An example of a programmatic request would be a Virginia organization requesting an increase in funding for a program they benefit from like the Department of Justice's Community Based Violence Intervention and Prevention Initiative.

Unlike congressionally directed spending requests, programmatic requests are not considered jointly by Senators Kaine and Warner. Please ensure your programmatic request is submitted to each office to be considered by both senators.

Senator Kaine accepted requests for Fiscal Year 2025 (FY25).

The deadline for submission was Friday, April 5 at 4:59pm. 

Please contact if you have any questions about whether your request is a programmatic or congressionally directed spending request.
