The Corps of Engineers may help resolve water resource problems for, and provide technical assistance to, states, indian tribes, environmental organizations and local governments. The Corps also provides assistance to these groups when preparing plans and initiating actions to manage water and related land resource issues themselves. This section includes an overview of the Corps programs with special emphasis on small cost-shared projects under the Continuing Authority Program.
Included is information on project criteria and project process with explanations about what these programs can do. There are instructions on how to request assistance. As you read through the material, you will notice a section number preceding the name of Continuing Authority Programs (CAP). The section number is in reference to the public law that provided the Corps the authority to do that type of project. Both authority and appropriations (funding) for Corps projects are provided by Congress.
