Requests Submitted by Congressman Aderholt to the House Committee on Appropriations for Community Funding Projects.

  • Capstone Rural Health Center-Nauvoo
    1. Located at 5947 Highway 269, Parrish, AL 35580, in a two-story building that was originally built to house a food bank.  The pharmacy is located on the 2nd floor.  There is inadequate patient care space and lack of full ADA access to services on-site.
    2. Requested: $725,000.00
    3. At the new clinic, services that would be provided include:
      1.  access to primary and behavioral healthcare;
      2. increased space to accommodate an additional primary care provider
      3. case management services;
      4. a dedicated room to provide Telehealth Services to patients when primary or behavioral health care providers are not in the clinic;
      5. ADA-compliant access to pharmacy services.
    4. The existing Nauvoo Center currently provides medical and behavioral care at approximately 3,600 visits each year and the Nauvoo pharmacy fills more than 2,500 prescriptions each month.
    5. This project is a good use of taxpayer funds because a new facility will be able to accommodate at least an additional 1,000-1,500 patient visits per year in this rural area with no other access to community health care within a 30 square mile radius.

Sheffield Housing Authority

  1. Located at 505 North Columbia Ave., Sheffield, AL 35660. 
  2. Requested: $500,000.00
  3. Funding for the Demolition of Blighted Properties and Purchase and Rehab of Tax Sales and Foreclosed Properties, Sheffield, AL, Colbert County, AL04, would be used for demolishing blighted structures in the City of Sheffield; and to purchase and rehabilitate tax sales and foreclosed properties for use by Sheffield Housing Authority’s Housing Choice Voucher programs.
    This project is a good use of taxpayer funds because demolishing blighted structures in the City of Sheffield for the purpose of building affordable housing will directly benefit low-income persons; and the tax sales and foreclosed properties will be bought and renovated to be used by the Housing Choice Voucher program as rental property or for sale through the Housing Choice Voucher Homeownership program, to low-income families.

U.S. Space and Rocket Center

  1. Located at 1 Tranquility Base, Huntsville, AL 35805
  2. Requested: $400,000.00
  3. The Space & Rocket Center is building a new facility for new STEM and cyber education classrooms that are sorely needed. This request will help provide equipment for the new building and directly assist the Center’s outreach to underserved and rural schools with the goal of enhancing student achievement in STEM areas of their studies. The funding will specifically support the Center in providing equipment, teacher training, curricula development, computers and books.
  4. This project is a good use of taxpayer funds because the Space & Rocket Center provides a unique access point for STEM education opportunities for underserved and rural students in North Alabama, the state as a whole, and beyond. Student success beyond technology, but facilitated by the technology is the key function that the Center can provide with this project. It will provide access for students to guest speakers - leaders in the emerging space industry, not limited to commercial space launch activity. Emerging career paths such as engineering, healthcare, technology, and cyber that the Rocket Center offers could be modeled for students in rural and underserved areas.

Institute for Digital Enterprise Advancement

  1. Located at 210 Wynn Dr., Huntsville, AL 35805
  2. Requested $550,000.00
  3. Funding for the Systems Engineering Technician Education Initiative
  4. This project brings a new workforce development pathway for a new skillset needed by the research and development community.  Model-Based Systems Engineering (MBSE) is a vital capability that can accelerate the research and development timeline by modeling/automating existing processes in the project life cycle and deliver new technology into the hands of the warfighter significantly faster. This 2-year System Engineering Technology (SET) Associate Degree provides a low cost, accelerated entry into the high tech field of engineering and should be attractive to graduating high school seniors, returning veterans, or workforce up-skilling/re-skilling.
  5. This is a good use of taxpayer funds because it will decrease the development timeline for new DOD systems and development in highly technical fields (e.g., hypersonics, weaponized unmanned aerial systems, directed energy) by creating more efficient processes, resulting in significant cost savings on Defense projects.
