The FAA announced nearly $300 million in funding for projects, including $245 million in Sustainable Aviation Fuels (SAF) infrastructure projects and $47 million in low-emission aviation technology projects.

The funding comes from the Inflation Reduction Act to reduce carbon emissions and help aviation reach net-zero by 2050.

ACC signed on to a statement with FAA last year committing to sustaining efforts to reach net-zero goals.

The FAA also announced $201 million in infrastructure grants for airport runway lighting projects at 82 airports.
