The Colorado Aeronautical Board has approved over $270,000 in Colorado Aviation Education and Workforce Development grants. The grants were awarded on Thursday, June 9, 2022, during a meeting of the Colorado Aeronautical Board (CAB) held in conjunction with the Colorado Airport Operators Association (CAOA) Spring Conference in Grand Junction, Colorado.
A total of ten organizations applied to compete for $400,000 allocated and approved for this grant program by the CAB in February 2022. Each applicant was required to answer a battery of nine questions regarding the details of the aviation program they proposed to be funded through the Colorado Aviation Education and Workforce Development Grant Program. A total of eight applicants were awarded grants for the 2022 and 2023 grant cycles.
The purpose of this aviation grant program is to help support organizations and entities that focus on aviation education and workforce development, and organizations that help develop the talent pipeline needed to support our future aviation system needs within the State of Colorado.
