With the recent discovery of a non-zero value of the neutrino mixing angle $\theta_{13}$, the NuMI Off-Axis $\nu_e$ Appearance (NO$\nu$A) long baseline neutrino oscillation experiment, currently under construction, has unique sensitivity to both the CP-violating neutrino mixing phase and the neutrino mass-hierarchy. Beyond NO$\nu$A, the proposed Long-Baseline Neutrino Experiment (LBNE) is designed for much greater sensitity to the CP-violating phase while providing a very rich physics program. I will review the design, capabilities and schedule of both experiments.
