Federal Contract Tower Cost-Sharing Program

AGENCY: Federal Aviation Administration DOT.

ACTION: Notice of cost-sharing program.


SUMMARY: This notice announces the creation of the Federal Contract 
Tower Cost-Sharing program. Cost-Sharing is a federally funded program 
that incorporates an airport's Benefit/Cost (B/C) Ratio, utilizes that 
B/C as a percentage, and provides qualified control towers that 
percentage of federal funds for the operation of their air traffic 
services. The airports are responsible for the remaining percentage of 
air traffic funding. Applying for this program is the same process as 
applying for the fully funded contract tower program. If you are 
interested in participating in this program, contact the FAA Regional 
Headquarters responsible for your area and request an application 

    Issued in Washington, DC on July 22, 1999.
