How to apply...
Requests are generally made in the form of a letter to the District Engineer which documents the need for assistance.
Note: Each program will indicate whether applications are to be submitted to the Federal headquarters, regional or local office, or to a State or local government office.
Response time and approval time may be the same for information readily available. Services and information are provided directly to the applicant except for some special study reports which are coordinated through the designated State agency.
Note: Grant payments may be made by a letter of credit, advance by Treasury check, or reimbursement by Treasury check.
Awards may be made by the headquarters office directly to the applicant, an agency field office, a regional office,
or by an authorized county office. The assistance may pass through the initial applicant for further distribution by
intermediate level applicants to groups or individuals in the private sector.
