FAA Awards $110M To 70 U.S. Airports

The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) is awarding another $110 million in Bipartisan Infrastructure Law funding to more than 70 airports across the U.S. for projects that increase safety and expand capacity.  

The $110 million includes 74 grants to airports in 32 states to modernize airport and runway infrastructure, improve airfield safety, and create jobs as part of President Biden’s Investing in America agenda.  

“The Biden-Harris Administration is proud to support projects to increase safety and efficiency on taxiways and runways at over 70 airports across the country,” said U.S. Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg. “This is another good step in a multi-billion-dollar modernization we’re delivering through President Biden’s Bipartisan Infrastructure Law to make America’s aviation systems safer and more efficient.” 

The new grants will help build taxiways, enhance firefighting and upgrade snow-removal equipment and facilities at airports across the country.
