What is an outgrant?


The westernmost part of George Bush Park in Houston.

An outgrant is a written, legal document that authorizes the right to use real property managed by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and establishes the timeframe, consideration, conditions and restrictions of its use.

Applicants

Outgrant Applicant,

Thank you for your inquiry regarding the issuance of an outgrant. Outgrants are complex real estate transactions that require multiple departments' oversight prior to the issuance of the appropriate legal instrument. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Galveston District staff is currently reworking procedures regarding the district's outgrant program and request your patience while we work to improve our process.

The district understands the environment in which both the Corps and applicants operate. Our new process is aimed at helping applicants access the timing of outgrant actions and how they relate to other actions such as 404/10 permits, 408s etc., to facilitate the coordination of all these actions.

We are currently accepting outgrant applications. The Real Estate Application Form is available as a downloadable PDF and may be submitted to the Real Estate Division through its electronic mail box at swg-re@usace.army.mil

Visit the USACE Galveston District's website for the most current information regarding the district's outgrant policy at http://www.swg.usace.army.mil/BusinessWithUs/RealEstateDivision/Outgrants.aspx.

Respectfully,
Chief of Real Estate
