33 U.S. Code § 426g - Storm and hurricane restoration and impact minimization program
The Secretary may carry out a program for the construction of small shore and beach restoration and protection projects not specifically authorized by Congress that otherwise comply with section 426e of this title if the Secretary determines that such construction is advisable.
The local cooperation requirement of section 426e of this title shall apply to a project under this section.
The Secretary shall conduct under the program authorized by subsection (a) a national shoreline erosion control development and demonstration program (referred to in this section as the “demonstration program”).
A project under the demonstration program shall not be carried out until the Secretary determines that the project is feasible.
Subject to paragraph (2), the Secretary may expend, from any appropriations made available to the Secretary for the purpose of carrying out civil works, not more than $30,000,000 during any fiscal year to pay the Federal share of the costs of construction of small shore and beach restoration and protection projects or small projects under this section.
 So in original. Probably should be “demonstration”.
