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. [Public Law] 113-121, 33 U.S.C. [United States Code] §2282d), Congress established an annual process for identifying proposals for site-specific 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 authorizations and appropriations. Although the 117th Congress is pursuing incorporating community project funding (see House [hyperlink] and Senate [hyperlink] appropriations committee websites) into the development of legislation, the Section 7001 process remains active. USACE released the Section 7001 report for 2021 [hyperlink] in November 2021. USACE accepted [hyperlink] nonfederal proposal submissions for the 2022 report from April 30, 2021, through August 30, 2021. The ASACW is to transmit the report in February 2022."
