Army Corps of Engineers Water Resource Projects: Authorization and Appropriations
The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers undertakes activities to maintain navigable channels, reduce flood and storm damage, and restore aquatic ecosystems. Congress directs the Corps through authorizations, appropriations, and oversight of its studies, construction projects, and other activities. Historically, the agency's authorizations and appropriations have been largely projectbased, with the projects being in specific locations. Legislative proposals and action related to the Corps in recent years have been shaped by congressional earmark moratoriums. Hurricane Sandy and the ongoing drought have brought attention to Corps actions, authorities, and funding in recent months. This report summarizes congressional authorization and appropriations processes for the Corps and explains the standard Corps project development process. It also discusses agency activities under general authorities.
