Airports AIP Program Branch


The AIP Program Branch is responsible for administration of the Airport Improvement Program (AIP) and for the preparation and implementation of the National Airports Capital Improvement Plan (ACIP). The ACIP serves as a planning tool for identifying critical development and associated capital needs for the National Airport System and also as the basis for the distribution of AIP grant funds. The Branch also initiates and/or reviews legislative and policy proposals affecting Federal assistance for airport planning and development; interprets legislation, policy, and related directives to provide eligibility guidance for prospective grantees and projects; ensures that reliable information on all prerequisites for proposed grant awards is available to Airports offices and other interested parties; and publishes and updates related directives.
