    Federal Aviation Administration (FAA)


    Created by the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law (BIL), the FAA's Airport Terminals Program (ATP) provides $5 billion in competitive grants for terminal development projects that address the aging air infrastructure at large hub airports , medium hub airports, small hub airports , and non-hub or nonprimary airports. These grants will fund safe, sustainable, and accessible airport terminals, on-airport rail access projects, and airport-owned airport traffic control towers. Projects may also include multimodal development.

    For FY24, $1 billion has been made available to fund projects across the country. These projects improve the passenger experience at airports in communities of all sizes. These improvements aim to make it faster and easier to check bags, get through security, and find your gate, all while creating jobs and supporting local economies.

    Eligible uses include upgrading, modernizing, and rebuilding airport terminals and sponsor-owned airport traffic control towers (ATCTs), including:

    • Projects that bring airport facilities into compliance with regulations like the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA)
    • Projects that create, modify, or expand facilities to meet demonstrated demand and promote accessibility, enhance environmental sustainability to achieve Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) accreditation standards, and encourage actual and potential competition
    • Projects supporting an equitable, clean energy future
    • Projects that create good-paying jobs with the free and fair choice to join a union
    • Projects addressing the challenges facing underserved communities and rural areas

    This program also supports the President's goals to mobilize American ingenuity to build modern infrastructure and an equitable, clean energy future.
