USACE has continued to review and make improvements to enhance the consistency and efficiency of the Section 408 program nationwide since the first national policy memorandum documenting Section 408 procedures was published in 2006. In that same spirit of continuous improvement, USACE sought feedback in the summer of 2022 from stakeholders with an interest in the Section 408 program.
USACE hosted a series of eight virtual listening sessions, six for the public and two for USACE staff, to understand stakeholders’ experiences with the program as well as opportunities for future adjustments. The original schedule included four public sessions, however two additional public sessions were added in September due to significant interest. Stakeholders were also able to submit feedback by email.
The listening sessions were attended by 427 stakeholders representing state and local government, federal agencies, industry, universities, and non-profits. USACE staff listening sessions were attended by 134 USACE team members representing 35 districts.
USACE would like to thank all who participated in the listening session series. Stakeholder feedback is tremendously valuable and greatly appreciated.
