Press Release - U.S. Department of Transportation Announces $290.6 Million in Infrastructure Grants to 105 Airports

WASHINGTON The U.S. Department of Transportation today announced the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) will award $ 290.6 million in airport infrastructure grants to 105 airports in 38 states across the United States as part of the FAAs Airport Improvement Program (AIP).

The airport grant program funds various types of airport infrastructure projects, including runways, taxiways, and airport signage, lighting, and markings which help to create thousands of jobs.

AIP grants will allow airports to complete critical airport infrastructure projects that will help maintain the safety of the nations airports, said FAA Administrator Michael P. Huerta.

Airports are entitled to a certain amount of AIP funding each year, based on passenger volume. If their capital project needs exceed their available entitlement funds, then the FAA can supplement their entitlements with discretionary funding. At this time, the FAA is providing discretionary funding to 26 airports based on their high-priority project needs.

Those receiving discretionary grants are listed here, while the entitlement grant recipients can be found at the link below:
