U.S. DOT PUBLISHES ORDER SOLICITING SMALL COMMUNITY AIR SERVICE GRANT PROPOSALS
The U.S. Department of Transportation has published a SCASDP Order Requesting Proposals for 2016. Proposals are due on May 2, 2016, no later than 5:00 PM EDT.
By this order, the U.S. Department of Transportation invites proposals from communities and/or consortia of communities interested in obtaining a federal grant under the Small Community Air Service Development Program ("Small Community Program" or "SCASDP") to address air service and airfare issues in their communities.
Subject to the availability of funding, the Department has up to $5 million available for FY 2016 grant awards to carry out this program. There is no other limitation on the amount of individual awards, and the amounts awarded will vary depending upon the features and merits of the selected proposals.
In past years, the Department's individual grant sizes have ranged from $20,000 to nearly $1.6 million. Funding amounts made available for reimbursement may be impacted by future limitations placed on the spending authority and appropriations enacted for the Department. The Order is also available on www.regulations.gov under Docket number DOT-OST-2016-0037.
