Synthesis of Information Related to Airport Practices. Topic S03-16. Project Prioritization and Selection Processes for State Aviation Funding

There are a variety of ways state aviation agencies prioritize, select, and justify projects for funding under state grant programs, determine project, develop statewide CIPs, identify programs for set aside funds, and evaluate projects. State and regional aviation officials would benefit from a comprehensive resource to identify and understand various aspects of planning, managing, and administering state aviation funds. This synthesis is not meant to evaluate or rate any specific state's methodologies, but rather to describe practices, lessons learned, and open issues. The objective of this synthesis is to document how state aviation agencies prioritize and select aviation projects with the funds available. This includes all state funding sources that contribute to aviation projects. The intended audience for this report is state aviation officials and airport sponsors.
