Many airports are funded by the federal government. In return for federal funds, airports must give grant assurances, or promises, to refrain from engaging in certain activities such as discriminating among users or failing to make the airport a fair economic playing field.

- Counseling clients on fueling rights; and
- Counseling airports and users on grant assurance “exclusive use” issues.
