President Biden’s Fiscal Year 2024 Budget proposes investments in Mid-Atlantic buildings


PHILADELPHIA – The Biden-Harris Administration announced today that the President’s Budget for Fiscal Year 2024 includes funding for investments in federal buildings in Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, and Martinsburg, West Virginia. The budget details a blueprint to grow the economy from the bottom up and middle out, lower costs for families, and more. 

The budget proposes investments in the American people that will help lay a stronger foundation for shared growth and prosperity for generations to come.

“The President’s Budget reflects smart investments that will help GSA make cost-saving upgrades to federal buildings, bolster the nation’s cybersecurity, and improve how the government delivers digital services to millions of Americans,” said GSA Administrator Robin Carnahan. “In addition, for the first time ever, the President’s Budget includes a provision that will guarantee full access to the Federal Buildings Fund while preserving Congress’s discretion to decide on and authorize investments – this is a game-changing provision that will enable GSA to modernize and consolidate the federal footprint, saving taxpayers millions and creating good-paying jobs in local communities.” 

In Pennsylvania, the President’s FY 2024 budget request for GSA includes funding for:

  • James A. Byrne U.S. Courthouse | Philadelphia | $83,799,000 – This project will upgrade the heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) system, which includes replacing obsolete air handling units. The upgrades will enhance control, optimize efficiency and improve tenant comfort.
  • Joseph F. Weis Jr. Courthouse | Pittsburgh | $40,699,000 – The project will replace the HVAC system, associated electrical systems, and a section of the roof, as well as provide lightning protection.

In West Virginia, the request includes funding for:

  • IRS Annex and Enterprise Computing Center | Martinsburg | $23,098,000 – The project will replace the 200,000-square-foot roof with cooler, more energy-efficient materials and improve accessibility, lightning protection and drainage throughout the roof. 

“These projects will provide much needed updates to these important facilities,” said acting Regional Administrator Tom Lyman. “The projects will support our customers, modernize infrastructure, provide more sustainable systems, and create the potential for jobs in Martinsburg, Philadelphia, and Pittsburgh.”
