Army Corps to Receive $62M for Infrastructure, Disaster Relief Projects in Chesapeake Bay Region

BALTIMORE, MD — The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE), Baltimore District, will receive approximately $62 million in supplemental funding to support critical missions over several years across the Chesapeake Bay region, including local dredging projects; completion of the District of Columbia flood risk management project; mitigation work associated with the Wyoming Valley levee project in Luzerne County, Pennsylvania; and $37.5 million for the Mid-Chesapeake Bay Island ecosystem restoration project. Funding is from two recently enacted laws — the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act and the 2022 Disaster Relief Supplemental Appropriations Act.

“The funding in these historic laws will allow us to execute important projects and services for the region, which support our local and national economies and help restore critical Chesapeake Bay habitat,” said Baltimore District Commander Col. Estee S. Pinchasin.
