District Projects

Section 204 Overview

Published March 10, 2020


The initial study and all planning costs are 100% federally funded. Design and construction costs above the "Base Plan" are cost shared 65% Federal and 35% non-Federal. The "Base Plan" represents the dredging placement work that would have occurred without the proposed 204 project. The sponsor cost share can be a contribution of cash, lands, easements, rights-of-way, relocations and disposal areas (LERRDs). No work-in-kind is allowed.


Formal assurance of local cooperation must be furnished by a local sponsoring agency. The sponsoring agency must normally agree to the following:

1. Provide without cost to the United States all LERRDs necessary for the construction and subsequent maintenance of the project;

2. Maintain and operate the project after completion without cost to the United States; and,

3. Assume responsibility for all costs in excess of the Federal cost of $10 million.


Investigations of an environmental improvement project under Section 204 can be initiated upon receipt of a request from a prospective sponsoring agency. Section 204 project requests should be directed to point of contact listed above.
