Recently the U.S. Department of Transportation (USDOT) announced $1 billion in county infrastructure funding from the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law. The Federal Aviation Administration has opened the application process for airports to submit projects for the first $1 billion of the Airport Terminal Program, and Maritime Administration (MARAD) announced nearly $450 million in newly available grant funding for port-related projects through the Port Infrastructure Development Program (PIDP).

Airport Terminal Program (ATP)

According to the press release:

“We have a once-in-a-generation opportunity to not just build new airport terminals, but build them in a way that brings opportunity to forgotten communities, increases competition and reduces environmental impact,” said U.S. Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg.

The purpose of the ATP is to make annual grants available to eligible airports for airport terminal development projects that address the aging infrastructure of the nation’s airports. Eligible airports include those operated by authorities, cities, territories, and tribes within the national air transportation system. Airport sponsors that wish to be considered for F.Y. 2022 ATP discretionary funding should submit an application that meets the requirements of the NOFO as soon as possible, but no later than 5:00pm Eastern time, March 28, 2022.

Port Infrastructure Development Program (PIDP)

According to the press release:

“We’re proud to announce this funding to help ports improve their infrastructure— to get goods moving more efficiently and help keep costs under control for American families,” said U.S. Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg. “President Biden is leading the largest ever federal investment in modernizing our country’s ports, which will improve our supply chains and the lives of Americans who depend on them.”

The PIDP is a discretionary grant program administered by the U.S. Maritime Administration. Funds for the PIDP are awarded competitively to projects that improve the safety, efficiency, or reliability of the movement of goods into, out of, around, or within a port.
