CAP (Continuing Authorities Program)
  • The Corps reviews the Sponsor’s request to determine if it fits a Continuing Authorities Program.
    • If the Sponsor’s request dose not fit a CAP, then Congressional authorization is required.
    • If the Sponsor’s request fits a CAP, then a short reconnaissance effort ( usually $10K to $20K) is initiated to determine the federal interest in proceeding with the study.
  • The Sponsor provides the lands, easements, rights-of-way, relocation (LERRD’s) for each authority.
    • Credit towards LERRD’s counts toward the total share cost.
    • The Sponsor is also responsible for operation and maintenance.
