Meeting Purpose: The Department of Transportation (DOT) is preparing to execute a new grant program specified in the Inflation Reduction Act Section 40007. This Act gives the DOT $297M for new grants to advance sustainable aviation fuels (SAF) and low emissions aviation technologies to reduce emissions from aviation and aid in addressing the climate crisis. This meeting will share information on the plans for the grant programs, called Fueling Aviation’s Sustainable Transition through Sustainable Aviation Fuels (FAST-SAF) and Low Emissions Aviation Technology (FAST-Tech), solicit interest from the public, and provide an opportunity for feedback on how the program is planned to be set up and executed. The meeting will also provide a venue for potential grant applicants to initiate discussions on teaming opportunities.
