The Community Noise Mitigation Program is designed to address communities impacted by military fixed wing aviation noise for the purposes of installing noise mitigation at covered facilities.  Covered facilities are:

  • hospitals,
  • daycare facilities,
  • schools,
  • facilities serving senior citizens, and
  • private residences.

Authorized under the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2022 (Pub. L. 117-35) Section 8120, the program provided $75 million to remain available for obligation until September 30, 2025. The funds must be expended by 5 years after that obligation.  The funds are allocated with $56.25 million to Active military installations and $18.75 million to Reserve component installations, of which $5 million shall be for communities near a military installation that has transitioned to a new type of aircraft after January 1, 2019. Request for funds can include meeting the Federal match requirements under the Federal Aviation Administration Part 150, Airport Improvement Program as needed.
