Last month Congresswoman Maxine Waters (CA-43) announced that the county of Los Angeles has been awarded a $4.5 million grant from the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) for residential noise mitigation.  The grant extends funding for the county’s Residential Sound Insulation Program, which provides assistance to families in unincorporated areas of the county to mitigate the impact of noise from aircraft flying into and out of Los Angeles International Airport (LAX). The grant may be used to provide residential noise mitigation for up to 200 dwellings benefitting approximately 910 people in portions of Lennox and Athens, she said.

 

“I am proud to announce that the county of Los Angeles has been awarded this grant to help families in Lennox and Athens who live with constant airport noise in their homes,” said Waters.

 

“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. Noise from planes landing at and departing from LAX is very disruptive for many people in these communities.  This grant will bring relief to families in Lennox and Athens who experience airport noise every day.”

 

Recently, the city of Inglewood was awarded a $10 million grant from the FAA for residential noise mitigation for homes in Inglewood.  Inglewood residents who wish to find out if they qualify for the program can contact the city of Inglewood’s Residential Sound Insulation Program at (310) 412-5289.

 

Residents of Lennox and Athens who wish to find out if they qualify for residential noise mitigation can contact the county’s Residential Sound Insulation Program at (626) 586-1798.
