     June 12, 2018

    On Friday, Secretary of Transportation Elaine L. Chao teamed-up with FAA Acting Administrator Dan Elwell to announce the first round of FY2018 AIP Grants.  The press conference was held at the Department of Transportation headquarters in Washington, DC and was attended by representatives from the press, staff of the D.O.T. and the relevant trade associations including ACC.

    Acting Administrator Elwell featured a number of AIP grants, including grants for a runway rehabilitation at King Salmon Airport in Alaska, an apron expansion at Chicago/Rockford International in Illinois, and a runway construction at Pullman/Moscow Regional Airport in Washington.  Additionally, Administrator Elwell cited the importance of embracing creative funding measures and the relaxing of private funding restrictions at airports. 

    This Administration is taking all opportunities to promote the traditional funding mechanisms.  It is worth noting that AIP grants were not the only program touted, the event also announced the $1.5 billion in proposed grants through the Infrastructure for Rebuilding America (INFRA) discretionary grant program. Click here for a link to the AIP Press Release
