FAA Awards Nearly $845M to Build More Accessible, Environmentally Friendly and Modern Airports

Published on : Friday, July 2, 2021

The U.S. Department of Transportation’s Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) awarded more than $845 million in grants for projects that will mitigate environmental impacts, increase accessibility, and expand capacity at airports across the United States. The funding from the fourth round of FY 2021 Airport Improvement Program grants will pay for projects at 388 airports in 49 states plus the District of Columbia.

“We don’t want to just build our airports back to the way things were before the pandemic. We want our airports to be better than ever–accessible to all, delivering maximum benefit to their communities, and helping directly and indirectly create jobs for millions of Americans,” said U.S. Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg.

The projects announced today will not have to pay the usual local match thanks to nearly $100 million in American Rescue Plan Act funding announced last week.

Today’s grants include:

Increase Safety, Capacity and Jobs:

Mitigate Environmental Impacts, including noise:

Increase Accessibility for Remote Communities:

Increase Accessibility for Individuals with Disabilities:

The Airport Improvement Program receives approximately $3.2 billion in funding each year. The FAA plans to award more than 1,500 grants in 2021. A complete listing of grants (PDF) and AIP Grants Data by State is on the FAA website.
