Funding of Improvement Projects

Airport improvement projects at the Delaware County Regional Airport are funded primarily with assistance from the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and the Indiana Department of Transportation – Aviation Division (INDOT). Airport planning, design, and construction projects are completed following strict FAA guidelines to allow up to for 90% reimbursement.

The FAA grant program is funded from the Airport and Airway Trust Fund, into which are deposited revenues from several aviation-user taxes on such items as airline fares, air freight, and aviation fuel. The grant program allows every $1 spent of infrastructure projects.

Recent projects include rehabilitation of Runway 14 in 2017, future resurfacing of Runway 32 in Spring of 2018, planned lighting upgrades to Runway 03/21 and Taxiway Bravo to more energy efficient LED lighting in 2019, and future modernization of the Air Traffic Control Tower.
