Discretionary aviation grant program

In 2003, legislation was signed into law by Governor Bill Owens. Senate Bill 49 continuously appropriates fuel tax dollars into the Colorado Aviation Fund. This legislation gives the Board increased abilities when dispursing discretionary grant dollars into the Colorado Airport System.

In 1991, the State Legislature channeled aviation fuel taxes to "aviation purposes". The Division of Aeronautics has reimbursed 65% of those taxes back into the Colorado airports as entitlement funds. Plus, the Board began conducting the Colorado Discretionary Grant Program (CDGP), utilizing the remaining 35% of tax revenues to serve the maintenance, capital equipment, and developmental needs of Colorado’s 79 public-use airports.[4]
