Notice of Order Soliciting Community Proposals

The Department of Transportation is soliciting proposals from communities or consortia of communities interested in receiving grants under the Small Community Air Service Development Program. The full text of the Department’s order, including Appendices, is included in this Notice. As noted in the order, an application for a grant under this program must include a Grant Proposal of no more than 20 pages (one-sided only), a completed Application for Federal Domestic Assistance, a Summary Information Schedule, and any letters from the applicant community showing support. Applications must be submitted no later than July 22, 2015.

The Department is authorized to award grants under 49 USC 41743 to communities that seek to provide assistance to:

  • a US air carrier to subsidize service to and from an underserved airport for a period not to exceed 3 years;
  • an underserved airport to obtain service to and from the underserved airport; and/or
  • an underserved airport to implement such other measures as the Secretary, in consultation with such airport, considers appropriate to improve air service both in terms of the cost of such service to consumers and the availability of such service, including improving air service through marketing and promotion of air service and enhanced utilization of airport facilities.

Priority Selection Criteria:

  • Air fares are higher than the national average air fares for all communities
  • The community or consortium will provide a portion of the cost of the activity from local sources other than airport revenue sources
  • The community or consortium has established or will establish a public-private partnership to facilitate air carrier service to the public
  • The assistance will provide material benefits to a broad segment of the traveling public, including businesses, educational institutions, and other enterprises, whose access to the national air transportation system is limited
  • The assistance will be used in a timely manner
  • Multiple communities cooperate to submit a regional or multistate application to consolidate air service into one regional airport
