The President’s Budget for Fiscal Year (FY) 2024 for the Army Corps of Engineers Civil Works program reflects the administration’s priorities to grow the nation’s economy, decrease climate risk for communities, increase ecosystem resilience to climate change, and promote environmental justice in disadvantaged communities in line with Justice40. The Budget funds the development, management, restoration, and protection of the Nation’s water, wetlands, and related resources, through studies, the construction and the operation and maintenance of projects, the Corps regulatory program, and emergency response. The Budget focuses on the highest performing work within the three main missions of the Corps: commercial navigation, flood and storm damage reduction, and aquatic ecosystem restoration. It also funds programs that contribute to the protection of the nation’s waters and wetlands, the generation of low-cost renewable hydropower, the restoration of certain sites contaminated as a result of the nation’s early atomic weapons development program, and emergency preparedness and training to respond to natural disasters. The Budget also focuses on the maintenance, repair, and replacement of the key features of the water resources infrastructure that the Corps owns and operates, and on the repair of the aquatic ecosystems that its projects have adversely affected. The Budget provides $86 million for research and development – the largest request in the Corps history – with a focus on work that has the potential to achieve significant cost savings in the civil works program.
