This notice applies only to those airports that have received such entitlements, except those nonprimary airports located in designated Block Grant States. Notification of the sponsor's intent to apply during fiscal year 2003 for any of its available entitlement funds including those unused from prior years, shall be in the form of inclusion of projects for fiscal year 2003 in the Airports Capital Improvement Plan.
This notice is promulgated to expedite and prioritize grants in the final quarter of the fiscal year.

Pursuant to the authority and limitations in section 47117(f), FAA will issue discretionary grants in an aggregate amount not to exceed the aggregate amount of deferred entitlement funds.
