WSDOT Aviation Grant Recipients 2009

Previous Grant Awards

2009 - WSDOT awards $900,000 in 2009 Airport Improvement grants

The Washington State Department of Transportation announced the award of $900,000 in Local Airport Aid grant funds to 35 airports, accounting for 41 different projects. This is the first round of airport grants that WSDOT has awarded during the 2009 – 2011 biennium.

Despite a significant projected decline in aviation revenues, WSDOT's Aviation program was able to use approximately $280,606 to leverage $11 million in federal funds, bringing the combined state, local and federal grand total to more than $12.4 million.

Funding Breakdown

State: $ 889,394
Federal: $11,007,058
Local: $ 470,414
Total: $12,461,866

WSDOT awarded airport grants in the following areas:

  • Pavement - 87 percent
  • Safety - 9 percent
  • Maintenance, Planning, and Other - 3 percent
  • Security - .5 percent

Exact grant amounts are subject to change according to final project bid totals.

WSDOT's grant program is funded through an 11-cent-per gallon fee on aviation fuel, along with aircraft registration fees.

WSDOT anticipates awarding a similar amount during its second round of 2009-2011 Local Airport Aid grants in April 2010. The department will solicit applications for that round during February and March 2010.
