Executive Summary for the Guidebook on Understanding FAA Grant Assurance Obligations

More than 3,000 airports in the United States have received an Airport Improvement Program (AIP) grant from the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) for airport planning or development; many of these airports receive grants on a yearly basis. Each AIP grant currently issued by FAA comes with 39 numbered grant assurances, which outline the requirements for project implementation and management. To support this program, a series of products has been published to help airport managers, planners, and operators understand and meet AIP requirements. ACRP Research Report 184 is the executive summary of the Guidebook on Understanding FAA Grant Assurance Obligations (published as ACRP Web-Only Document 44, Volume 1) and explains each of the 39 grant assurances. This summary includes a matrix that outlines major aspects of the program such as duration and applicability, and it provides a list of related assurances. The matrix is included in ACRP Web-Only Document 44, Volume 1, where it includes links to specific sections of the Guidebook that discuss each grant assurance in more detail. The detailed discussions, which include lists of required practices, prohibited practices, permitted practices, and exceptions, are available in additional volumes of ACRP Web-Only Document 44.
