Rep. Maxine Waters (CA-43), ranking member of the Financial Services Committee, announced that the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has approved an $8 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 Rep. 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 will be used to provide residential soundproofing for approximately 202 dwellings, benefiting approximately 505 people. Inglewood residents who wish to find out if they qualify for residential soundproofing, can contact the city’s Residential Sound Insulation Program at (310) 412-5289.
