DISCUSSION
The Long Beach Airport (Airport) receives grant funds annually from the Federal Aviation Administration’s (FAA) Airport Improvement Program (AIP). Entitlement funds are the portion of the AIP funds allocated to the Airport based on the number of passengers enplaned, and are calculated by the FAA using a set formula. Discretionary funds are the portion of AIP funds that are allocated to airports based on need and national priority, as determined by the FAA.

The projects anticipated to be funded by this year’s grants include Runway 7L-25R Rehabilitation; and the Rehabilitation of Access to Taxiways E and F, Phase 2. The Rehabilitation of Runway 7L-25R and the Improvements to the Access to Taxiways E and F, Phase 2 both include the rehabilitation of pavement and improvements to pavement markings, lighting, signage and storm drain systems, grading of infield areas, and the reconstruction of adjacent perimeter roads.
