Frequently Asked Questions

Q. What is an authorized Title XVI project?
A. An authorized Title XVI project is a project that is specifically authorized for funding by Congress under Title XVI of Public Law 102-575, as amended (43 U.S.C. 390h through 390h-39). Since 1992 53 projects have been specifically authorized by Congress under Title XVI.

Q. What project budget information needs to be provided with a proposal?
A. Proposals must include a summary of all non-Federal and Federal funding sources for work already completed without Federal funding for which reimbursement is being sought, and for all work planned to be completed. Proposals must also include a description of estimated expenditures that are planned, including a description of expenditures for activities that have previously been completed without Federal funding. It is not necessary to submit a full budget as part of the proposal. After all proposals have been reviewed, prioritized project sponsors will be required to submit a full budget proposal to Reclamation. Details regarding what needs to be included in the full budget proposal will be provided at that time.
