Committee to Host Webinar on AIP Pilot Grant Program

Executive Summary: In this joint ACI-NA / AAAE hosted webinar FAA staff will discuss the Zero-Emission Airport Vehicles and Infrastructure Pilot Program, explain who is eligible, and how to apply.

Issue:  The FAA Modernization and Reform Act of 2012 created a new program under the Airport Improvement Program (AIP).  This program, the Zero-Emission Airport Vehicles and Infrastructure Pilot Program, was officially launched in 2013.  This Program allows airport sponsors to use AIP funds for the acquisition of Zero Emission Vehicles (ZEVs) or for construction/modification of the necessary infrastructure to support such vehicles or allow for the delivery of fuel.  The webinar will cover the basics of the program, including eligibility criteria, and will work through an application as an example.  It's never too early to start planning for the 2014 grant cycle.

Who Is ImpactedAirports in the U.S. who are interested in purchasing zero emission airport vehicles.

What ACI-NA and AAAE are DoingThe ACI-NA Environmental Affairs Committee and AAAE Environmental Services Committee are jointly hosting this webinar to educate our members about this pilot program.
