The Port Authority takes its role as a community leader very seriously. This includes everything from investing in the infrastructure that keeps the region moving to investing in the people and places that make it all work.
We work closely with communities and elected officials throughout the region on a variety of community-based initiatives. We continue to be a strong proponent of noise-abatement programs in local schools, a leader in the use of alternative-fueled vehicles and a major funder of the Council for Airport Opportunity and Air Service Development Office.
Each year, we host a variety of educational and community events, which range from career days to help students explore aviation career opportunities to an annual 5K run at Teterboro Airport.
Many of our airport staff meet regularly with local community boards, participate in community forums and serve in community organizations during their spare time. We live here, too, and do all we can to make a difference whenever we can.
