Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF) Grants

The U.S. Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) provides grants of up to $50,000,000 to support the development of SAF as part of the Fueling Aviation’s Sustainable Transition (FAST) program. The program is part of the SAF Grand Challenge, established under the Inflation Reduction Act of 2022. Eligible projects include SAF production, transportation, blending, and storage. Qualifying SAF must reduce greenhouse gas emissions by more than 50% and be derived from biomass, waste streams, renewable energy, or gaseous carbon oxides. A cost share of 25%, or 10% for small- or non-hub airports, is required. Eligible participants include state and local governments, air carriers, airport sponsors, institutions of higher education, research institutions, SAF or low-emission aviation technology developers, and nonprofit organizations. For more information, see the FAA FAST Grants website, the Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO), and the NOFO FAQs.
