Transportation: Provo Municipal Airport – Provo City, Utah

Jordan & Associates worked closely with Provo City to secure federal support for the necessary infrastructure to initiate commercial air service at the Municipal Airport.  The firm secured a total of $1.8 million through the FY 2002 and 2003 Transportation Appropriations Bill for a Control Tower at the Provo Airport.  The firm also identified a competitive discretionary grant program through the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), which provided funding for modernization of small airports.  Jordan & Associates then helped Provo secure operational support for the Control Tower through the FAA Contract tower Program.  The firm worked to secure radar coverage, as the next step toward reaching Provo City’s goal of commercial air service by securing $1 million through the FY 2008 Transportation Appropriations Bill for Beacon Interrogator-6 coverage.  A radar site was critical for attracting commercial air carriers to the airport.  Jordan & Associates worked to establish commercial air service at Provo by identifying a federal grant within the Department of Transportation (DOT) known as the Small Community Air Service Development Program to address air service and airfare problems in their communities.  Provo was awarded $500,000 in October 2010, which proved critical to attracting a commercial air carrier to the Provo Airport.  Commercial air service began in 2011.
