President’s FY 2019 Budget for USACE Civil Works Program

The President’s Budget for Fiscal Year 2019 (FY 2019) includes $4.785 billion in gross discretionary funding for the Civil Works program of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, reports USACE.

The Fiscal Year 2019 Civil Works budget for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers reflects the administration’s priorities to support and improve the nation’s economy and infrastructure,” said Mr. Ryan Fisher, Principal Deputy Assistant Secretary of the Army for Civil Works. “This Budget supports the core mission areas of the Corps – commercial navigation, reducing flood risks from riverine flooding and along our coasts, and restoring aquatic ecosystems.”

According to the Corps, new Federal funding in the Civil Works budget consists of $3.769 billion from the General Fund of the Treasury, $965.13 million from the Harbor Maintenance Trust Fund (HMTF), an estimated $45 million from Special Recreation User Fees, and $5.25 million from the Inland Waterways Trust Fund (IWTF).

The FY 2019 funding will be distributed among the appropriations accounts as follows:

    • $2,077 million for Operation and Maintenance;
    • $965 million for Harbor Maintenance Trust Fund;
    • $872 million for Construction;
    • $245 million for Mississippi River and Tributaries;
    • $200 million for the Regulatory Program;
    • $187 million for Expenses;
    • $120 million for the Formerly Utilized Sites Remedial Action Program (FUSRAP);
    • $82 million for Investigations;
    • $27 million for Flood Control and Coastal Emergencies;
    • $5 million for Inland Waterways Trust Fund;
    • $5 million for the Office of the Assistant Secretary of the Army for Civil Works.

The FY 2019 Budget includes $1.930 billion for the study, design, construction, operation and maintenance of inland and coastal navigation projects.

The Budget gives priority to coastal harbors and inland waterways with the most commercial traffic. It also provides priority for maintenance of channels at small ports that support significant commercial fishing, subsistence, or public transportation benefits.
