    FY22 Handshake Partnership Program Request for Nominations, SUSP: 30 Sept 2021
    Please see the attached memorandum, signed by the Chief of Operations and Regulatory Division, that announces the call for proposals for the FY 22 Handshake Partnership Program. The program is in its nineteenth year and offers an additional funding source (i.e., seed money up to $25,000 per project) to USACE facilities for worthwhile partnership projects. The Handshake Program provides an excellent opportunity to leverage local partnerships with USACE dollars outside of the usual O&M budget to help complete recreation and environmental stewardship projects that benefit both lands, waters, and visitors.

    Electronic applications with district and MSC coordination must be sent from the MSCs to Mr. Phil Manhart, Phil.J.Manhart@usace.army.mil, representative on the Partnership Advisory Committee, NLT 30 September 2021.

    The memo, application instructions, and a copy of the application are included in this e-mail and are also posted on the NRM Gateway Handshake Program page at https://corpslake s.erdc.dren.mil/employees/handshake/handshake.cfm

    Handshake Program webinars will be conducted:

  • July 28: 2:00 - 3:00 Eastern
  • August 18: 11:00 - 12:00 Eastern
  • Call-in/Web meeting information will be sent one week prior to each webinar.

    Please support and encourage the widest participation in this program that will represent a broad range of projects.

    Feel free to contact me, or your division Partnership Advisory Committee member if you have any questions: (NAD-Scott Sunderland; SAD- Francis Ferrell; MVD-Phil Manhart; LRD- Allison Walker; SWD-Jennifer Linde; SPD-Taylor Baughn; NWD- Heath Kruger; Emeritus: Tennille Hammonds)

    Thanks,
