US Levee Safety Coalition 2018-2019 Webinar Series: Second Webinar in the Series - "USACE 2018 Supplemental Funding"

The second webinar in the U.S. Levee Safety Coalition 2018-2019 webinar series was “USACE 2018 Supplemental Funding.” The webinar was presented on January 10, 2019 and repeated on January 30, 2019.

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers received supplemental funding for disaster recovery projects as part of the Bipartisan Budget Act of 2018. Approximately $17.39 billion was provided for disaster recovery across the country. The funds will be used for both long- and short-term disaster recovery projects. The webinar, presented by the Ms. Yvonne Prettyman-Beck, USACE HQ National Program Manager, Emergency Disaster Supplemental Programs Integration Division (see Ms. Prettyman-Beck's bio), provided an overview of the program, including allocation of funds across six appropriation accounts, implementation strategy, and schedule. Ms. Prettymn-Beck and her team discussed (1) What projects are within the supplemental work, (2) How non-federal sponsors, AE community and construction contractors can support this work, and (3) Where the AE community and Contractors can get more information on specific projects and opportunities. Mr. Douglas Sims, Program Manager, Hurricane Harvey Support Team, SWD RIT, HQUSACE presented the January 30 repeat of the webinar for Ms. Prettyman-Beck (see Mr. Sims' bio).
