PennDOT Aviation Grant Administration
|PennDOT's Bureau of Aviation is actively involved in promoting, developing and preserving Pennsylvania’s airport system. Act 164 of 1984 authorized the bureau to provide assistance to all public airports, including those privately-owned. Act 164 also provided for expanded airport development and real estate tax relief to public airports. Pennsylvania’s responsibilities under this law are to preserve, upgrade, and, when possible, build new airport facilities. These funds are needed to ensure the growth and development of Pennsylvania’s airport system.|
Act 164 of 1984
The Bureau of Aviation administers three grant programs for airport development: the federal Block Grant Program, or BGP, the state Aviation Development Program, or ADP, and the state Capital Budget/Transportation Assistance Program, or TAP, which collectively invest approximately $35 million annually.
