Assistance Consideration
Projects requesting over $1,000,000 in state funds will require special consideration by the Programming Committee and, in general, are not recommended. Pavement rehabilitation projects must demonstrate visual need or low PCI ratings. Project can be completed in one construction season or calendar year (i.e. no phased projects). Airport has no Aeronautics compliance issues (in Good Standing with Safety Section inspections). Project impacts safety and performance of airport: preservation of existing pavement, provides that airspace is free & clear of obstructions, provides up-to-date electrical systems, ensures airport grounds are secure.

Only one project at a given airport will be chosen in a program year, although multiple requests by a sponsor for consideration are allowed.
