LOUISVILLE, Ky. — Officials say airports across Kentucky will be getting federal funding for projects that will improve their infrastructure. 

The Federal Aviation Administration said it will award more than $40 million this year from the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law to 51 commercial and regional airports. 

Officials say it is the first of five annual rounds of funding that can go toward runways, taxiways, roads, safety, terminals and transit connections. 

Airports will be able to submit proposed projects in coming weeks for the FAA to review. 

The agency says priorities are safety, equity and sustainability. 

Kentucky's five commercial airports will receive a majority of the funding and 46 smaller ones will receive the rest.
