The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) announced an award of $2.89 billion to 3,075 airports in the U.S. from the bipartisan infrastructure bill.
According to the International Airport Review, the money can be invested in runways, taxiways, safety, and sustainability projects, as well as terminal, airport to transit connections and roadway projects.
Airports can submit proposals to the FAA for review in the coming weeks. The FAA encourages applicants to prioritize projects that increase airport safety, equity, and sustainability. The agency also plans to conduct outreach to the minority business community about these opportunities at airports across the nation.
