North Central Texas Council of Governments (NCTCOG)

The Water Resources Development Act of 2000 (WRDA 2000, Public Law No. 106-541) as amended, allows the Corps to accept funds from non-federal public entities to provide priority review of their permit applications.

Section 214 of WRDA 2000 reads as follows:

  • IN GENERAL - In Fiscal Years 2001 through 2003, the Secretary (of the Army), after public notice, may accept and expend funds contributed by non-federal public entities to expedite the evaluation of permits under the jurisdiction of the Department of the Army.

  • EFFECT ON PERMITTING - In carrying out this section, the Secretary shall ensure that the use of funds accepted under subsection (a) will not impact impartial decision making with respect to permits, either substantively or procedurally.

The House of Representatives Bill (H.R. 3080) Water Resources Reform and Development Act of 2014 (Public Law 113-121, Section 1006) removed the expiration date imposed by WRDA 2000 for the Section 214 Program.

The Fort Worth District of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) point of contact in the Regulatory Branch for WRDA Section 214 related issues is Barry Osborn – (817) 886-1734.
