Airport Coronavirus Response Grant Program (ACRGP) / Coronavirus Response and Relief Supplemental Appropriation Act (CRRSAA)
The Coronavirus Response and Relief Supplemental Appropriation Act (CRRSAA) (H.R. 133), signed into law by the President on December 27, 2020, includes $2 billion in funds to be awarded as economic relief to eligible U.S. airports and eligible concessions at those airports to prevent, prepare for, and respond to the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) public health emergency.
To distribute these funds, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has established the Airport Coronavirus Response Grant Program (ACRGP). The FAA will announce the calculated award for each NPIAS airport based on a formula developed under the CRRSAA.
Administration of these funds will follow the normal AIP grant process with the state once the funds become available.
Under this new Airport Coronavirus Response Grant Program:
- Non-primary commercial service and general aviation airports will share $45 million based on their airport categories, such as National, Regional, Local, and Basic. Of that $45 million, airports that participate in the FAA Contract Tower Program will divide $5 million equally.
