Flood risk management project eligibility
The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers issued an interim policy change on March 21, 2014, for determining eligibility status of flood risk management projects. This will allow eligibility determinations in the rehabilitation program to continue to be implemented while the new policy is developed. The interim policy provides revised eligibility criteria for levee systems based on inspection items from the existing levee inspection checklist.
While comprehensive levee system inspections will continue, those ratings will not be used to determine eligibility status in the rehabilitation program. The interim policy’s paragraphs 5 and 6 specify that only a subset of the criteria previously used to determine eligibility will continue to be used to make eligibility determinations during the interim period. It is important to note that vegetation on levees is no longer a criterion for determining program eligibility.
The interim policy’s paragraph 7 provides additional detail for processing Letters of Intent and System-Wide Improvement Frameworks as part of this interim policy.
