Title
Resolution to Approve a 2020 CARES Act Agreement with the Michigan Department of Transportation for Reimbursing Eligible Airport Operating Expenses at the Ann Arbor Municipal Airport ($69,000.00) (8 Votes Required)

Memorandum
Attached for your consideration is a resolution to approve a grant agreement with the Michigan Department of Transportation-Office of Aeronautics (MDOT-Aero), in an amount not to exceed $69,000.00, to reimburse the Ann Arbor Municipal Airport for eligible airport operating expenses. Funding was established in the 2020 CARES Act, federal legislation approved in March, 2020, to provide economic support to airports throughout the United States. MDOT-Aero, acting as a Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Block Grant Program Participant, will award and administer the grant funds in Michigan on behalf of the FAA under the FAA CARES Act Grant Number 3-26-SBGP-117-2020.

Use of these funds is restricted to those purposes allowed under the FAA's Policy and Procedures Concerning the Use of Airport Revenues (64 Federal Register 7696, as amended). For the Ann Arbor Municipal Airport, these funds will be used to reimburse general airport operating expenses and lost revenue as a result of the current pandemic. There are no matching funds required under the 2020 CARES Act Agreement for airports.

Budget and Fiscal Impact: The grant amount of up to $69,000.00 is 100% federally funded with no required match. There is no negative budget or fiscal impact. Reimbursement and Appropriation of these funds will be made to the Airport Fund Operations and Maintenance budget. The grant is administered by MDOT-Aero.
