Tailored Outreach Events

 

We are now offering outreach events upon request in your local area. Corps staff is available to meet with your organization and cover topics such as working in regulated waterways, wetlands, and along shorelines; when a permit is required from the Corps, including specific requirements for projects typical of your area; how to apply for permits; and other services the Corps Regulatory Office provides.  These outreach events are a great opportunity for participants to discuss their project with Corps staff.  Presentations and workshops are provided by Corps staff at no cost.  The events may be held in a venue that you arrange or at a publicly available meeting room. We welcome the opportunity to discuss tailoring a presentation and/or workshop to your organization’s interests as they relate to the Corps Regulatory Program.
