Airport Aid Grant Awards (2013-2015 Biennium)
2013 - WSDOT's Airport Aid Grant Program awards $25.4 million in state, federal and local grants
OLYMPIA - The Washington State Department of Transportation's (WSDOT) Airport Aid Grant Program used $897,839 in state funds to leverage nearly $22 million in federal grants for Washington airports during the first round of grants in the 2013-2015 biennium. The combined state, federal and local grants for this round totaled $25.4 million for airport projects.
- Federal - $21,970,905.44
- State - $1,877,945.98
- Local - $1,569,164.75
- Total - $25,441,940.22
Sixty-nine percent of the state funds awarded in this round of grant projects are focused on pavement. Maintenance and preservation of runway, taxiway and apron pavements represents one of the largest capital investments in the aviation system. Ongoing pavement maintenance is critical because repairs are much more costly once the condition deteriorates below a certain level. Therefore WSDOT places a priority on funding airport pavement projects to preserve facilities and improve safety.
- 26 pavement - $1,302,122.59
- 15 safety - $378,201.09
- 10 planning - $187,872.30
- 2 security - $9,750.00
Exact grant amounts are subject to change according to final project bid totals and construction quantities.
Forty-four airports applied for more than $3.1 million in funding during this grant cycle. WSDOT's Airport Aid grant program is funded through an 11-cent-per gallon fee on aviation fuel, along with aircraft registration fees.
WSDOT anticipates soliciting applications for the second round of 2013-2015 biennium grants in March and April 2014. Award notifications for that round of grants is targeted for the week of June 2, 2014.
