Airport Improvement Program (AIP) 2022-2024 Supplemental Appropriation
The FAA's regular Airport Improvement Program (AIP) provides more than $3.18 billion annually in entitlement and discretionary grant funds for a network of more than 3,300 eligible airports. On March 15, 2022, the President signed Public Law 117-103, "Further Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2022," which included a Supplemental amount of $547,909,100 for discretionary grants under the AIP statute, 49 U.S.C. Chapters 471 and 475.
The Supplemental funds made available under the FY 2022 Appropriations Act are derived from the General Fund and are not subject to existing AIP discretionary formulas or set-asides. The Supplemental funds are available for award through FY 2024.
Of the total made available, $279,180,135 is available for the purposes, and in amounts, specified for Community Project Funding/Congressionally Directed Spending as stipulated in Public Law 117-103 and the JES. This Congressionally Directed Spending identified specific projects at specific airports and thus is not part of this NOFO. These are detailed in a list of Community Projects.
The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) announces the opportunity to apply for approximately $268,728,965 in fiscal year (FY) 2022 competitive supplemental discretionary grants. The purpose of the supplemental discretionary grant program is to make grants to eligible airports for airport construction projects, associated airport capital planning, noise planning and noise mitigation projects, and energy and environmental sustainability projects. FAA will implement the FY 2022 supplemental discretionary grant program consistent with Airport Improvement Program (AIP) sponsor and project eligibility and will consider project applications that align with the priorities, limitations, and requirements described in this notice. At least $25,000,000 will be made available for the Voluntary Airport Low Emissions Program (VALE) and the Zero-Emission Vehicle and Infrastructure Program (ZEV), pursuant to the JES. The JES also directs FAA to ensure that funds are made available to reduce the impact of noise on local communities, including funding grants for noise planning and noise mitigation.
All Supplemental funds will be awarded by September 30, 2024.
