Congresswoman Waters Announces $10 Million Federal Grant for the City of Inglewood for Residential Noise Mitigation

 

September 11, 2014

 

Inglewood, CA- Today, Congresswoman Maxine Waters (CA-43) announced that the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) awarded a $10 million grant to the City of Inglewood for residential noise mitigation.  The grant extends funding for the City's Residential Sound Insulation Program, which provides assistance to Inglewood families to mitigate the impact of noise from aircraft flying into and out of Los Angeles International Airport (LAX).

 

"I congratulate the City of Inglewood upon being awarded this grant to help families in Inglewood mitigate the impact of airport noise in their homes," said Congresswoman Waters. "Although Inglewood has previously received noise mitigation funds, not all residents have been covered and many have been waiting for years for soundproofing for their homes."

 

The grant may be used to provide residential noise mitigation for up to 480 dwellings in the City of Inglewood.  Inglewood residents who wish to find out if they qualify for residential noise mitigation can contact the City's Residential Sound Insulation Program at (310) 412-5289.

 

"For many years, I have been concerned about the impact of airport noise upon the individuals and families who live, work and go to school near LAX," continued Congresswoman Waters.  "Noise from planes landing at and departing from LAX is very disruptive for many families in these communities.  This grant will bring relief to families in Inglewood who experience airport noise every day."
