Request a Grant Writer

Grants to New York airports for infrastructure improvements and economic development. Funding is intended to support projects that are designed to enhance operational efficiencies, have a positive economic impact on the locality and the state, preserve assets, or enhance safety at public-use airports. Eligible project activities include safety projects; preservation projects; new construction; and other projects that enhance economic competitiveness.

Eligible airport projects include, but are not limited to:

  • Construction, reconstruction, improvement, reconditioning, and preservation of capital facilities.
  • Pavement maintenance/management projects.
  • Purchase of airport equipment. Equipment acquired must be operated and stored on airport property.
  • Purchase and installation of navigational aids.
  • Projects which address safety issues at the airport.

NYSDOT is committed to working with program applicants to ensure the quick implementation of this program so that these investments create jobs; enhance regional economic development; and benefit all New Yorkers and the State’s many visitors.

Scoring criteria for the Aviation Capital Grant Program have been divided into two categories, project specific and airport specific. Project-specific criteria are tied directly to the project and include Economic Benefit, Operational Efficiency, and Safety. Airport-specific criteria are attributable to the airport or the airport sponsor, and include the airport’s potential for generating aviation activity and past experience managing grants.
