The U.S. Department of Transportation’s Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) will award $66.2 million from President Biden’s Bipartisan Infrastructure Law to airports in 23 states and Puerto Rico. The 66 projects are funded exclusively by non-discretionary grant funds under the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law Airport Infrastructure Grant (AIG) program. In total the infrastructure law invests $25 billion over five years in U.S. airports to modernize terminals, increase safety, expand capacity, replace equipment and more.

Thanks to President Biden, we are delivering historic funding to modernize airports across the country, creating jobs, growing local economies, and supporting passengers for years to come.U.S. Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg
