The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) has announced an initial list of projects to address high-priority needs in states recently impacted by natural disasters, including several in Texas in the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey.

According to the USACE, the initial allocation of approximately $360 million will be used to address at 32 projects in 12 states.

The funding for these projects comes as a part of the Bipartisan Budget Act of 2018, signed into law February 9, 2018.

“As Texas continues on the road to recovery, our shipping channels and bayous are among the highest priorities for investment and repair,” said Texas Governor Greg Abbott.

“These projects and improvements will address concerns in a number of local communities affected by Harvey and help combat future flood events. I thank the Army Corps of Engineers for their commitment to these initial projects and look forward to expanding upon this list as Texas continues to recover and rebuild.”

The USACE identified the following projects in Texas to begin repair work on:

  • Buffalo Bayou and Tributaries;
  • Corpus Christi Ship Channel;
  • Galveston Harbor and Channel;
  • GIWW, Channel to Victoria;
  • Gulf Intracoastal Waterway;
