Corps Work Plan for FY21 

After Congress has appropriated E&W funding into three categories:

  1. Investigations
  2. Construction
  3. Operations & Maintenance

Corps districts will send project funding requests to their Division. The Corps Division will then prioritize it's requests with the requests of it's districts and made a final request to be sent to Corps Headquarters in Washington, DC. Finally, Corps Headquarters will send it's final recommendations to the Assistant Secretary of the Army for Civil Works. Following a rigorous economic and budgeting battle between the White House Office of Management and Budget, the Assistant Secretary of the Army for Civil Works will release a Work Plan.
