Bipartisan Infrastructure Law - Airport Infrastructure

$15 billion for building better airports across america

 

The Bipartisan Infrastructure Law provides $15 billion for airport-related projects as defined under the existing Airport Improvement Grant and Passenger Facility Charge criteria. The money can be invested in runways, taxiways, safety and sustainability projects, as well as terminal, airport-transit connections and roadway projects.
 

The Bipartisan Infrastructure Law has given us a once-in-a-generation opportunity to build safer and more sustainable airports that connect individuals to jobs and communities to the world. With this new funding, urban, regional and rural airports across the country now can get to work on projects that have waited for years, modernizing their infrastructure and building a better America.

First-Year Airport Infrastructure Grant Funding Amounts

For FY22, $2.89 billion has been made available to U.S. airports around the nation. This map shows the funds available for each airport and projects underway.

For full details on the FY22 funding amounts, see the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law Airport Allocations file.


As part of the BIL Airport Infrastructure improvement initiative, $100M will be provided over 5 years starting in FY2022 through the FAA Contract Tower Competitive Grant Program. The purpose of the FCT Competitive Grant Program is to make annual grants available to eligible airports for airport-owned airport traffic control tower projects that address the aging infrastructure of the nation's airports. Program information and applications instructions can be found on the grant program page.
