1 U. S. Army Corps of Engineers Philadelphia District How to start the Corps’ Project Delivery Engine Local Sponsor Identifies A Problem and Requests Corps Assistance Through Normal Fed Budget Cycle, District works with Sponsor to Request a New Start (Earliest Fed Funding is 2 years out) District Requests funds now from the Corps Annual Appropriations (Project can lead to Construction/Implantation) Smaller Project Larger Project CAP (Continuing Authorities Program) Solution fits within Floodplain Management Service Program Solution fits within Planning Assistance for States/Tribes Program General Investigation New Start Project District Evaluates the Problem and Determines Appropriate Program
