Continuing Authorities Program (CAP)

  • Guidance
    • EP 1105-2-58: Continuing Authorities Program (formerly Appendix F of the PGN)
      This appendix provides the policy and procedural guidance for planning, design, and implementation of projects pursued under the legislative and administrative provisions of the Continuing Authorities Program (CAP). Note: This EP replaces the existing Appendix F of the Planning Guidance Notebook.
    • Engineer Regulation 1105-2-100: Planning Guidance Notebook
      The Planning Guidance Notebook provides the overall direction by which the Corps of Engineers civil works projects are formulated, evaluated, and selected for overall implementation. This includes all appendices that were written at a later date.
    • Engineer Regulation 1165-2-119: Water Resources Policies and Authorities - Modifications to Completed Projects
      This regulation provides guidance on the use of available authorities in comparison to the need for new project authorizations.
    • Memo: Cost Sharing for Lands Associated with Fish and Wildlife Mitigations (September 19, 2006)
      This memorandum provides guidance on the policy applicable to cost-sharing of lands, easements, rights of way, and relocations (LERRs) associated with fish and wildlife mitigation for water resources development projects, including continuing authorities program projects. The guidance will be applied prospectively to ongoing and future pre-authorization and pre-Project Cooperation Agreement (PCA) planning activities.
    • Model Cost Share Agreements for CAP
    • Revisions to Implementation Guidance for Section 1030 of the Water Resources Reform and Development Act (WRRDA) of 2014, Continuing Authorities
      Section 1030 of WRRDA 2014 increases the programmatic limits and per project limits for certain Continuing Authority Program (CAP) authorities and for the Flood Plain Management Services (FPMS) Program. In addition, it provides that the Water Resources Development Act (WRDA) of 2007 cost sharing amendment for beneficial use of dredged material does not apply to certain projects. Further, it provides that the entire non-federal share for projects under Section 1135 of WRDA 1986 may be provided by in-kind contributions. Finally, Section 1030 directs that the Secretary publish in the Federal Register the criteria used for prioritizing the annual funding for CAP projects and on an annual basis the status of each CAP project. This guidance supersedes Implementation Guidance for Section 1030 of WRRDA 2014, dated 3 December 2014.
    • Implementation Guidance for Section 1119 of the Water Resources Development Act (WRDA) 2016, Indian Tribes
      Section 1119 of WRDA 2016 further amends Section 1156 of WRDA 1986 (33 U.S.C. 2310). Section 1032 of the Water Resources Reform and Development Act (WRRDA) of 2014 previously amended Section 1156 to provide that the non-federal cost sharing waiver of up to $200,000 be adjusted to account for inflation from the date of enactment of WRDA 1986 up to the date of enactment of WRRDA 2014, for studies and projects in specified territories of the United States and in Puerto Rico. Section 1119 of WRDA 2016 extends the waiver provision to Indian Tribes as defined in Section 102 of the Federally Recognized Indian Tribe List Act of 1994 (25 U.S.C. 5130).
