This is an emergency approval request for a new collection to solicit the data necessary to help the FAA evaluate and select airport terminal and tower projects for funding under the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law (BIL) (P.L. 117-58) , signed on November 15, 2021. The BIL provides $1,020,000,000 annually, for five years, to award competitive discretionary grants for airport terminal and tower development. Airport owners and managers (sponsors) who elect to compete for funding and obtain benefits from the BIL Airport Terminal and Tower Programs will submit project information. The information collected is based on grant considerations outlined in the BIL. Some 3,075 airports are eligible to participate in the BIL Airport Terminal and Tower Programs, though not all will have a project that fits the criteria outlined in the BIL.
This emergency approval is for a new collection to solicit the data necessary to help the FAA evaluate and select airport terminal and tower projects for funding under the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law (BIL), signed on November 15, 2021. The FAA is requesting emergency approval to meet the timeline set by Congress for announcing availability of funds and soliciting project information. Public harm will likely result if the FAA cannot issue BIL Airport Terminal and Tower Programs grants in a timely manner. The nation’s airport infrastructure has many needs including rehabilitation and new development. It is the intent of the BIL to get these much needed funds out to airports as quickly as possible so the flying public will have improved airport infrastructure. The BIL designates the appropriation of BIL funds for airport terminals and towers as an emergency requirement under Congressional spending legislation.
