The Water Resources Development Act

Section 214 of the Water Resources Development Act (WRDA) of 2000 (as amended) provides that the Secretary of the Army 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.

The Portland District has recognized the benefits this program provides to all stakeholders who work with the district's regulatory branch. The use of funds accepted under Section 214 of WRDA  will not impact impartial decision-making with respect to permits, either substantively or procedurally. A list of these permit actions is posted below.
