LoBiondo Announces Federal Grant for Hammonton Municipal Airport

Jul 12, 2017

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Congressman Frank A. LoBiondo (NJ-02), Chairman of the House Aviation Subcommittee, announced today that the Hammonton Municipal Airport will be receiving a grant of $210,600 from the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) to update the airport’s master plan.

“Updating the airport’s master plan will assist Hammonton in identifying future opportunities to improve and modernize the airport,” said LoBiondo, Chairman of the House Aviation Subcommittee. “This federal funding continues local investments to ensure South Jersey remains connected with our nation’s transportation grid and interstate commerce.”  

The federal funding is awarded from the FAA’s Airport Improvement Program. Eligible projects include those improvements related to enhancing airport safety, capacity, security, and environmental concerns. Any professional services that are necessary for eligible projects — such as planning, surveying, and design — are eligible as is runway, taxiway, and apron pavement maintenance. Aviation demand at the airport must justify the projects, which must also meet Federal environmental and procurement requirements.
