Congressman Gerry Connolly championed Mason projects to land federal funding
Mason will expand its research and real-world impact addressing cybersecurity and mental health care needs thanks to the efforts of U.S. Representative Gerry Connolly (D-VA).
Mason will receive $1 million in federal funding to support the creation of a first-of-its-kind Mason Center for Excellence in Government Cybersecurity Risk Management and Resilience and nearly $1 million for the Saving Lives and Decreasing Health Disparities project. Funding for both efforts came as part of the federal omnibus appropriations bill that President Biden recently signed into law to fund the government through Fiscal Year 2023.
Connolly, whose 11th District includes Fairfax, is a senior House Oversight and Government Reform Committee member and his party’s lead on the Subcommittee on Government Operations.
