Airport Improvement Program (AIP)

Established under the Airport and Airway Improvement Act of 1982, this program provides grants to public agencies and, in some cases, to private owners and entities for the planning and development of public-use airports that are included in the National Plan of Integrated Airport Systems (NPIAS). Eligible projects include those improvements related to enhancing airport safety, capacity, security and environmental concerns.
