The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has delivered to Congress its Fiscal Year 2024 Work Plan for the Army Civil Works Program.


Of the $8.681 billion in appropriations provided for the Army Civil Works Program in the act, approximately $8.2 billion is appropriated across five accounts ― Investigations, Construction, Operation and Maintenance, Mississippi River and Tributaries, and the Formerly Utilized Sites Remedial Action Program.


The remaining $484 million in the FY 2024 Civil Works appropriations provides funding in the Expenses, Regulatory, Water Infrastructure Finance and Innovation Program Account, and Flood Control and Coastal Emergencies accounts, as well as funding for the Office of the Assistant Secretary of the Army for Civil Works.


“The FY 2024 Work Plan for Army Civil Works continues this administration’s ongoing commitment to fund crucial infrastructure projects and build resilience in a changing climate. Its investments in our coastal ports and inland waterways will strengthen the economy and help maintain our farmers’ competitive advantage in the global marketplace. Resources are also dedicated to ensure the resumption of full operations at Baltimore Harbor, re-opening a critical port for the nation’s trade and commerce,” said Michael Connor, Assistant Secretary of the Army for Civil Works.


The FY 2024 Work Plan being announced includes funding for 284 projects and studies, in 50 states, four territories, and for multiple Tribes. These investments are currently assisting local communities to improve their resilience in the face of global climate change and are providing improvements to boost coastal ports and the inland waterways.
