Airports to Get Infrastructure Building Funds

$1.187 Billion

A list of grants and interactive map of airports receiving funding details is available that shows where the $731M in Airport Improvement Program funds and $455M in Supplemental Discretionary grants go.

The U.S. Department of Transportation recently announced that Federal Aviation Administration will award $1.187 billion in airport safety and infrastructure grants. The total includes $731 million in Airport Improvement Program grants and an additional $455 million in Supplemental Discretionary grants. The money will be available for 100% of the eligible costs under the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act.


The combined AIP and Supplemental Discretionary grants will fund a wide variety of projects including conducting airport master plan studies, constructing and repairing runways and taxiways, installing lighting, signage and airport perimeter fencing.

"The 439 grants will ensure that airport sponsors can make the necessary improvements so their airports can operate in a safe and efficient manner for years to come," said FAA Administrator Stephen M. Dickson.

A complete listing of grants and an interactive map of airports receiving funding are available on the FAA website.
