The FY 2024 Work Plan for Army Civil Works continues this administration’s ongoing commitment to fund crucial infrastructure projects and build resilience in a changing climate. Its investments in our coastal ports and inland waterways will strengthen the economy and help maintain our farmers’ competitive advantage in the global marketplace. Resources are also dedicated to ensure the resumption of full operations at Baltimore Harbor, re-opening a critical port for the nation’s trade and commerce,” said Michael Connor, Assistant Secretary of the Army for Civil Works.

On March 9, 2024, President Biden signed into law the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2024, Public Law 118-42, of which Division D is the Energy and Water Development and Related Agencies Appropriations Act, 2024. The act provides $8.681 billion in appropriations for the Army Civil Works Program. Today, the Army is announcing the FY 2024 Work Plan, which will fund studies and projects in 50 states, four territories, and the District of Columbia, including communities with environmental justice concerns.

Of the $8.681 billion in appropriations provided for the Army Civil Works Program in the act, approximately $8.2 billion is appropriated across five accounts ― Investigations, Construction, Operation and Maintenance, Mississippi River and Tributaries, and the Formerly Utilized Sites Remedial Action Program.
