Revised USACE Policy on Eligibility Criteria for Projects in RIP

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) is continuing in the process of revising its policies relating to eligibility criteria for levee and coastal projects within its Public Law (P.L.) 84-99 Rehabilitation and Inspection Program (RIP), and is requesting stakeholder input.

Under the authority of P.L. 84-99, an eligible flood risk management system can be rehabilitated if damaged by a flood event. The flood risk management system would be restored to its pre-disaster status at no cost, if the system was constructed by USACE, or on a cost-shared basis to the Sponsor, if the system was constructed by a non-federal entity.

The Corps has published an Advance Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (ANPR) in the Federal Register, entitled “Emergency Employment of Army and Other Resources, Natural Disaster Procedures,” to help obtain public input on the policy concepts being considered.

Some of the concepts included in the revised USACE policy are the removal of inspection ratings as the sole determining factor in the determination of eligibility requirements for RIP; and the development of new eligibility requirements that focus on meeting basic eligibility requirements plus demonstrated emergency preparedness, outreach, and project operation and maintenance activities.
