From the Document: "The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE), through its civil works mission, undertakes water resource development studies and projects and other assistance activities that are specifically authorized by Congress. In Section 7001 of the Water Resources Reform and Development Act of 2014 (WRRDA; P.L. 113-121, 33 U.S.C. §2282d), Congress established an annual process for identifying proposals for sitespecific studies and projects within USACE's water resource mission and authorities. The process includes a call for nonfederal proposals and concludes with a report by the Assistant Secretary of the Army for Civil Works (ASACW) to USACE's congressional authorizing committees. Congress established the Section 7001 process while congressional earmark moratorium policies were in place for both authorization and appropriations. Although the 117th Congress is pursuing incorporating community project funding (see House [hyperlink] and Senate [hyperlink] websites) into the development of legislation, the Section 7001 process remains active. USACE opened [hyperlink] the nonfederal proposal submission period for the 2022 report on April 30, 2021, with an August 30, 2021, submission deadline. USACE anticipates hosting public information sessions about the process in July and August 2021."
