Request a Grant Writer

Grants to USA small communities to address limited air service or high air fare at local airports. Funding is intended to enhance air travel services in currently underserved regions. Funding may be awarded to communities seeking to provide assistance to:

- A U.S. air carrier to subsidize service to and from an underserved airport for a period not to exceed 3 years;
- An underserved airport to obtain service to and from the underserved airport; and/or
- An underserved airport to implement such other measures as the Secretary, in consultation with such airport, considers appropriate to improve air service both in terms of the cost of such service to consumers and the availability of such service, including improving air service through marketing and promotion of air service and enhanced utilization of airport facilities.

Estimated Total Program Funding:

$12,500,000

Number of Grants:

40

Estimated Size of Grant:

In past years, the Department’s individual grant sizes have ranged from $20,000 to nearly $1.6 million.

Term of Contract:

Subsidies to US air carriers may not exceed a period of three years.

In the Department’s experience, reasonable timetables for use of grant funds generally include two years to complete studies, three years for marketing and promotion (including advertising and public relations) of the airport, community, carrier, or destination, and four years for projects that target a revenue guarantee, subsidy, or other financial incentives.

Additional Eligibility Criteria:

Eligible Applicants:
- Communities that do not currently have commercial air service are eligible for SCASDP funds.
- Both individual communities and consortia of communities are eligible for SCASDP funds. An application from a consortium of communities must be one that seeks to facilitate the efforts of the communities working together toward one joint grant project, with one joint objective, including the establishment of one entity to ensure that the joint objective is accomplished.

In order to satisfy the hub size requirement set forth in 49 U.S.C. § 41743(c)(1)(A), the airport serving the community or consortium may not be larger than a small hub airport, as determined using the FAA’s most recently published classification effective on the date that the community or consortium files an application.

Private organizations may not be designated as the legal sponsor of a grant under the Small Community Program.

Airport capital improvement projects, including, but not limited to, runway expansions and enhancements, the construction of additional aircraft gates, and other airport terminal expansions and reconfigurations are ineligible for funding under the Small Community Program.

Expenditures made prior to the execution of a grant agreement, including costs associated with preparation of the grant application, will not be reimbursed.

Pre-Application Information:

Applications must be submitted via Grants.gov no later than 4:00 PM EDT on Monday, July 15, 2019. Applicants are strongly encouraged to submit applications in advance of the deadline.

Please be aware that applicants must complete the grants.gov registration process before submitting an application, and that this process usually takes two to four weeks to complete.

Each applicant is required to (i) be registered in SAM before submitting its application; (ii) provide a valid DUNS number in its application; and (iii) continue to maintain an active SAM registration with current information at all times during which it has an active Federal award or an application or plan under consideration by DOT.

Cost sharing or matching is not required for applications. However, applications that provide multiple levels of contributions (state, local, cash and in-kind contributions) will be viewed more favorably.

The Small Community Program is a reimbursable program.
