10 The Guidebook (ACRP Web-Only Document 44, Volume 1) consists of this summary and two chapters. This summary is being made available in printed form and as part of a web-only document. The Guidebook and the technical appendices are available exclusively as volumes of ACRP Web-Only Document 44. • Executive Summary. Sections 1 through 4 of the summary discussed the purpose of this Guidebook and its target audience and provided brief summaries of the research process and research results. Section 6 provides, in table form, a matrix of high-level information about the grant assurances, such as duration and applicability. The table is presented in the sequential order that the grant assurances appear in grant agreements. The table includes references to the sections in the remaining chapters of the Guidebook, which link directly to those sections when viewed in electronic form. Additional information on the format and structure of the table is included in Section 6. • Section 7 describes the consequences if FAA determines that a sponsor has not complied with one or more grant assurance requirements. The grant assurances fall into two broad categories: (1) grant assurances generally applica- ble to airport operations, management, or finance and (2) grant assurances applicable to the planning or the implementation of AIP-funded projects (project-specific requirements). The remaining chapters each address one of these two categories. • Chapter 1 presents the summaries for generally applicable grant assurances relating to airport operations, management, or finance. The organization and content of the summaries are described in more detail in the Introduction to Chapter 1. • Chapter 2 presents the summary pages for project-specific grant assurances relating to plan- ning, design and implementation of projects. ACRP Web-Only Document 44, Volume 2, consists of technical appendices that provide more detailed information on the grant assurance requirements and resource material available to assist in understanding the grant assurance requirements. It includes six appendices, as follows: • Appendix A provides data on the frequency with which individual grant assurance require- ments were addressed in the determinations and opinions discussed in Section 4.3. • Appendix B provides the full text of the current version of the grant assurances as they appear in grant agreements. • Appendix C lists the resources and references identified for each grant assurance. The appendix pre sents first the resources and references for generally applicable grant assurances, in numerical order, and then the resources and references for project-specific grant assur- ances, also in numerical order. However, the resources and references for Grant Assurance 1, S e c t i o n 5 How Is the Guidebook Organized?

How is the Guidebook organized? 11 General Federal Requirements, are presented in the tables addressing Grant Assurance 1 in each of the two chapters described above. • Appendix D lists airports determined by FAA to be grandfathered under Grant Assurance 25, Airport Revenues. • Appendix E presents an expanded list of questions and answers (Q & As), with more entries than are included in the individual grant assurance summaries. The expanded list includes issues that rarely arise and is intended for airport staff facing an unusual issue that may have arisen before. The expanded Q & As are based on the review of the administrative determina- tions, agency opinions, and judicial decisions described in Section 4.3. • Appendix F presents a synopsis of resources and references listed in Appendix C. Appendix F is organized by the source of the resource or reference.
