n late 2019, Congress fully funded a new grant program intended to help industry meet the upcoming
expected shortage of qualified aviation maintenance
personnel. The Federal Aviation Administration was expected
to publish application information for the Aviation Maintenance Technical Workers Workforce Development Grant
Program, which is just one outcome of the FAA
Reauthorization Bill of 2018.
The FAA's stated objective of the program
is to generate and increase interest and
prepare students to pursue aviation maintenance careers.
To be eligible for the grant, projects must:
*	 Establish new educational
programs that teach technical
skills used in aviation maintenance,
including purchasing equipment, or to
improve existing such programs;
*	 Enhance aviation maintenance technical education or aviation maintenance industry workforce;
*	 Establish scholarships or apprenticeships for individuals pursuing an aviation maintenance career;
*	 Support outreach programs about careers in aviation
maintenance to primary, secondary, and post-secondary students as well as communities underrepresented
in the industry;
*	 Support transition careers into aviation maintenance,
including for members of the armed forces; and several other workforce development initiatives; or

Support educational opportunities related to aviation maintenance in economically disadvantaged
geographic areas.
Certain FAA-certificated organizations, including holders
of Parts 21, 121, 135, or 145 certificates; institutions of higher
education, high schools or secondary schools; and state
and local governmental entities are eligible to apply for the grant.
It's important to note the FAA does not
have authority to issue grants outside of
these eligible organizations, so other
types of organizations should not apply.
However, entities may be able to partner
with eligible organizations to meet congressional intent. Individuals should also
not apply, as this is not a direct scholarship program and the FAA is not authorized to use the grant funds in that manner.
Congress appropriated $5 million for the 2020
fiscal year budget. Grants will range between $25,000
and $500,000, and the FAA expects to fund a minimum of 10
proposals per year.
The FAA planned to release an initial Notice of Funding
Opportunity via www.grants.gov on or about Nov. 13, 2020. 
Organizations considering applying for the grant should
create an account on www.grants.gov to become familiar with
the application process and review sample forms.
The Aircraft Electronics Association will provide
more information regarding the application process as it
becomes available. q
