This is the renewal of a collection, original given emergency approval in February 2022, 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. Of this amount, about $1,000,000,000 annually is for the Airport Terminal Program (ATP), and $20,000,000 annually is for an Airport-owned Contract Tower Program (FCT). 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 and allows the FAA to evaluate and distribute BIL funds to address aging infrastructure at the nation’s airports. Some 3,075 airports are eligible to participate in the BIL Airport Terminal Program and about 170 for the Tower Program, though not all will have a project that fits the criteria outlined in the BIL.

  Total Request Previously Approved Change Due to New Statute Change Due to Agency Discretion Change Due to Adjustment in Estimate Change Due to Potential Violation of the PRA
Annual Number of Responses 755 510 0 0 245 0
Annual Time Burden (Hours) 4,530 3,060 0 0 1,470 0
Annual Cost Burden (Dollars) 543,600 342,720 0 200,880 0 0
Based on the number of applicants who responded to the first round of funding for BIL grants, we have increased the number of expected annual applicants from 510 to 755. This has resulted in a corresponding increase in both the expected annual burden and annualized cost to airports. We also made small adjustments to the collection instrument (FAA Form 5100-144). These add short-response questions (current stage of project, date project costs were known, age of the tower), eliminate or consolidate other short-response questions, and expand character limits in open text fields. This latter change was made at the request of applicants who thought it would be less burdensome if they did not have to edit responses to fit the previous limits. As a while, we do not expect these adjustments to the instrument will impact the collection burden.
