Grant to a Washington, DC university, educational institution, or for-profit enterprise to conduct an analysis on the impact of noise pollution caused by air traffic to and from Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport. Questions may be submitted up to a week prior to the deadline. This study will involve noise monitoring data analysis and modeling and will ultimately result in recommendations to reduce noise or mitigate impacts.

The goals of this Request for Applications (RFA) are to assist the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) in implementing the Next Generation Air Transportation System (NextGen) to optimize airspace and aircraft arrival and departure procedures and routes.
