Synthesis of Information Related to Airport Problems. Topic S02-05. Strategies and Financing Opportunities for Airport Environmental Programs

Many opportunities exist for airports and airlines to obtain funding for airport environmental projects, including well-known sources of Federal Aviation Administration funding and new sources of funding that many airport operators are unaware of and do not know how to access. Comprehensively identifying funding opportunities for airport environmental projects is critical during the current economic downturn where projects are getting cut and staff members have limited resources and time to identify available funding opportunities. The objective of this synthesis project is to provide airport operators and users with a comprehensive tool for identifying potential sources of funding for airport environmental projects. The audience for this synthesis would be airport and aviation environmental specialists and environmental project managers. Airport operators and airlines that do not have the resources or experience to identify all of the potential sources of funding would find this report particularly valuable. The synthesis report will provide airport operators with a series of funding alternatives to facilitate important environmental projects being carried out that would otherwise be postponed. The research will highlight programs that airport operators can access for funding, but other programs found of interest to airlines, concessionaires, and lessees will be included to the extent identified. The research for this project will include a review of federal and state funding opportunities for environmental projects including airport environmental projects and other environmental projects associated with transportation or other closely related industries. Any airport experience with each program will be identified. The resulting product should also provide a table of grant proposal specifics and web resources for each program identified.
