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

There are a variety of ways state aviation agencies prioritize, select, and justify projects for funding under state grant programs, determine project and sponsor eligibility, develop statewide CIPs, identify programs for set aside funds, and evaluate projects and sponsors. State and regional aviation system planners and managers would benefit if a comprehensive resource was available to identify and perform their own evaluation of various aspects of planning, managing, and administering regional and state aviation systems. This project aims to synthesize the various ways state aviation agencies manage, administer, and implement their programs and funding mechanisms. It would not evaluate or rate of any specific state's methodologies. Rather, this project would describe effective practices, lessons learned, and open issues. This project builds on ACRP Project 01-37, Performance Measures for State Aviation Agencies, identifying approaches to tying projects and the overall project selection process to improving State Aviation System Planning-related performance measures. The objective of this synthesis is to summarize and document various state aviation grant program policies, procedures, and processes used across the country. The audience for this report is state aviation planners and the airport management staff that they serve through grant programs.
