The U.S. Department of Transportation is hosting a public meeting on December 14 to provide an overview of new grant programs designed to advance sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) and low-emissions aviation technologies. In the Inflation Reduction Act that was signed into law in August, Congress set aside $297 million for the newly established Fueling Aviation’s Sustainable Transition through Sustainable Aviation Fuels (FAST-SAF) and Low-Emissions Aviation Technology (FAST-Tech) programs.

During the public meeting, FAA officials will share information on plans for the grants and solicit interest in participation. To be held online and in-person at the DOT headquarters from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., the meeting also will provide an opportunity to provide feedback on plans for the execution of the programs, as well as for potential applicants to network and discuss teaming options.

Virtual participants will have access to a chat feature to ask questions. Registration details will be forthcoming.
