About the Handbook
|The Aviation Section
of the Missouri Department of Transportation is pleased
to provide you with the First Website Edition of the State
Block Grant Program Guidance Handbook. This Handbook
is the result of a partnership between MoDOT's Aviation Section,
the Federal Aviation Administration's Central Region Airports
Division, and the Missouri Airport Managers Association. A
committee was formed to look at ways to streamline procedures
for the State Block Grant Program in Missouri and improve
sponsor education of grant procedures and requirements. This
Handbook is the result of that committee.
The Handbook is designed to take the airport sponsor from
grant application through grant closure and provide practical
guidance on successfully completing a SBGP project. However,
this is very much a team effort between the airport sponsor,
MoDOT and our consultant friends. We will be involved throughout
the process and are available to answer questions and provide
assistance when needed.
Sections within the Handbook commonly refer to MoDOT applications,
agreements, checklists, certifications and specifications.
These can be easily downloaded by clicking on the highlighted
item or by returning to Grant
Documentation on our website.
The FAA Central Region Airports Division website is also an
excellent resource for federal grant sponsors. Current Advisory
Circulars and other publications can be found at their
website, which is " http://www.faa.gov/airports_airtraffic/airports/regional_guidance/central/
". The majority of pertinent information can be found
in the standards and engineering section under "AIP Administrative
