The Federal Aviation Administration, Maritime Administration and U.S. Department of Transportation offers many funding opportunities, including grants (PIDG, BUILD, CRISI, PSG, AIP, EAS, SCASDP and INFRA) and loans (TIFIA and RRIF). They are designed to:
Promote the modernization of and increase capacities at port cargo terminals
Enhance airport safety, passenger and cargo capacity, security and environmental concerns
Provide passenger air service on routes to smaller communities that are not commercially viable
Facilitate the acquisition of modern cargo handling equipment that can improve efficiencies in port operations
Reduce the impact of port and terminal related operations on climate and the environment
However, the complexity and competition for infrastructure funding has made it extremely challenging for port authorities, marine terminal operators and airlines to gain access to them.
Let Strong Port Strategies be your guide to the latest information on Federal port, terminal and intermodal connector project grants. Our knowledge of Federal policies, programs and assistance opportunities is unmatched.
“Lauren’s work in ensuring that our Nation’s public ports are informed about Federal assistance grants is noteworthy, especially her efforts to implement the Port Infrastructure Development Grant Program.”
