Aeronautics Division's Role Under The AIP:

In Massachusetts, the Aeronautics Division acts as the agent, or conduit, by which airport sponsors apply to the FAA for funding of airport development projects, and through which airport sponsors receive federal funds for reimbursement. In every way, the Aeronautics Division acts in a similar manner that the FAA does during project development. From initial planning of each project, to reviewing and approving project design, to processing grant applications, through construction of the project, to approving payment requests, and finally, acceptance for closing out each project. The only real difference is that the Aeronautics Division typically pays a smaller percentage of the cost of each project.
