Title: Natural Disaster Procedures: Preparedness, Response, and Recovery Activities of the Corps of Engineers 

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (Corps) is finalizing an update to the Federal regulation that covers the procedures that the Corps uses under section 5 of the Flood Control Act of 1941, as amended (33 U.S.C. 701n), commonly referred to as Public Law 84-99. The Corps relies on this program to prepare for, respond to, and help communities recover from a flood, hurricane, or other natural disaster, including the repair of damage to eligible flood risk reduction infrastructure. The Corps initiated this rulemaking process through an advanced notice of proposed rulemaking (ANPRM) on February 13, 2015. The Corps published a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) on November 15, 2022.  The NPRM included a summary of the comments to the ANPRM.  This rule finalizes revisions to the program to address statutory changes under various Water Resources Development Act provisions and formalize certain agency guidance relating to natural disaster procedures.
