Continuing Authorities ProgramNational US Army Corps of Engineers (USACE)Watersheds, Resilience and AdaptationRollingPer award: $1 million - $15 millionFeasibility phase cost share = 50/50 after the first 100,000, design and construction cost share varies, from 65/35 (fed/non-fed) to 75/25, depending on authorityThe Continuing Authorities Program is a collection of water resource project authorities under which the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) can plan, design, and implement certain types of water resources projects without additional project-specific congressional authorization. The program is intended for relatively straightforward projects, and it is not intended to address large, complex, or controversial water resource challenges. Because CAP projects do not require congressional approval, they are typically quicker to complete than larger USACE projects. Projects typically cost between $1M and $15M to construct. All CAP authorities have Federal cost limits and the total costs are shared with a local partner. CAP Production Center
