Description: The U.S. Department of Transportation (USDOT) and the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) hereby request applications for the award of new grant agreements under the FAA Aircraft Pilots Workforce Development Grant Program. The USDOT was directed to establish the Program through fiscal year 2023 in Section 625 of the FAA Reauthorization Act of 2018 (Pub. .L. No. 115-254). This authority was supplemented by the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2020 (Pub. .L. No. 116-92, Section 1743) (hereinafter referred to as the “NDAA”), which added one additional category to eligible entities for the Program. On October 5, 2018, the President signed the FAA Reauthorization Act of 2018 (Pub. L. No. 115-254) (the “Act”). Section 625 of the Act establishes an Aviation Workforce Development Grant Program to support the education of future aircraft pilots and the development of the aircraft pilot workforce. Through the award of these grants, the USDOT and the FAA will assist in providing meaningful educational experiences designed to prepare students throughout the Nation to become aircraft pilots, aerospace engineers, or unmanned aircraft systems operators, and support the related professional development of teachers. Congress authorized the Program through the end of Fiscal Year 2023. A Federal Register Notice was published to open a period of public comment that closed on September 24, 2020. Per the Authorizing Legislation, the goal of the Program is to provide grants for eligible projects to support the education of future aircraft pilots and the development of the aircraft pilot workforce.
