At the end of June, FLL received a $20 million grant from the U.S. Department of Transportation for the South Runway Project. They will contribute a total of $250 million for the project in installments over 12 years.
Also in June, the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) awarded FLL a $6 million grant. FDOT will contribute a total of $129 million for the runway over the next several years. The total cost of the South Runway Project is estimated at $791 million. The remaining funds for the runway project will come from passenger facility charges.
Self-Supporting: The Airport is monetarily self-supporting. The Aviation Department does not use any Broward County tax revenue to fund the operations, maintenance, or capital improvements. The Aviation Department generates funds through user fees, rentals, and other charges. Fees and grants (state and federal) fund the capital improvement projects. Any surpluses are reinvested into the airport facilities.
