Federal Aviation Administration (FAA)
The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has opened the application process for Bipartisan Infrastructure Law (BIL) funding to modernize air traffic control towers at many small town and municipal airports. The FAA will fund projects that sustain, construct, repair, improve, modernize, replace, or relocate airport-owned towers and install communications equipment. The FAA Contract Tower Competitive Grant Program provides $20 million annually for five years within the newly established Airport Infrastructure Grant program. There are currently around 156 airports with air traffic control contract towers eligible for this funding. by May 16, 2022.
