Is your airport eligible to participate in a pilot program to redevelop properties previously purchased for airport noise compatibility?

Per the FAA Modernization and Reform Act of 2012, the FAA, today, has published Program Guidance Letter (PGL) 13-04 that provides eligibility, project requirements and a checklist for airports to apply for $5 million to redevelop acquired “noise land”.  In addition to grant funding, an eligible airport may submit a PFC approval request.  The FAA is authorized to provide funding at a maximum of four airports for a total of $20 million.  The pilot program authority to issue grants sunsets September 30, 2015.  This pilot program is intended to encourage compatible land uses and generate economic benefits.
