Army Corps of Engineers-Chicago Accepting Floodplain Management Service Program Applications

The Army Corps of Engineers Chicago District planning team is seeking applicants for its Floodplain Management Services (FPMS) program. The FPMS program enables the Corps to provide services to communities to reduce flood risk. It is 100% federally funded, so no cost share is required of communities. Typical FPMS products include flood warning plans, hydraulic & hydrologic modeling, flood communications plans, etc. These studies do not result in construction but can help communities better manage their local flood risk.

The FPMS study request process is pretty simple – all we need is a short description of the flooding problem, requested services and a letter of interest (sample attached to this invitation). We can work with you to craft the requests. We would like to receive any requests by June 17, 2022.

If you have any questions at all, please do not hesitate to contact me - Kira Baltutis at Kira.M.Baltutis@usace.army.mil / (312) 846-5514 or Dave Handwerk at david.r.handwerk@usace.army.mil / (312) 846-5455.
