NPIAS expenditures by project type. is accomplished through the preparation of the necessary environmental documents to meet the requirements of the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA). Environmental documents range from Categorical Exclusions to Environmental Assessments to Environmental Impact Statements. In addition to AIP funding for specific projects, funding from other government agencies may also be available (e.g., from the TSA for security improvements). 7.3 State Grants Many states support aviation development. The two most common forms of state funding are matching grants for AIP-funded projects or state-local grant programs that are not eligible for Federal funding. The level of state participation, eligibility of projects, and application process varies from state to state. Typically, the State DOT aviation department or office oversees any state aviation funding programs. 7.4 Airport Revenues Local funds for GA airports typically come from local airport revenues or the operating governmental entity for publicly owned airports. When a GA airport is part of a larger airport system, additional airport revenue funds may be available to support the overall system. The most common sources of airport-generated revenues at a GA airport are as follows: Fuel sales or fuel flowage fees Land and facility leases (such as building and hangar rents) Tenant contract revenue (FBO, rental car, etc.) Activity and usage fees (such as aircraft tie-downs) Advertising revenues Whether these revenues flow to the airport owner or to a tenant depends on the contractual arrangement for services at the airport. When the revenues are less than the funds needed for the operation of the airport, the next source of funding usually comes from the airport owner or sponsor. This may include the relevant taxing authority through its governing body.
