Abstract : The report evaluates possible modifications to the Airport Development Aid Program (ADAP). The most desirable improvement to ADAP is obtained by extending ADAP eligibility to include terminal area investment. This would permit more efficient and more equitable use of ADAP funds. Increasing the federal share of project costs to 75%, to some extent, also appears desirable. This modification would allow increased support of airport development more comparable to federal support of other transportation modes.
