Inglewood was awarded a $10 million federal grant to soundproof homes affected by the noise of airplanes landing and taking off at the Los Angeles International Airport, Congresswoman Maxine Waters announced Thursday.
The Federal Aviation Administration grant is enough to insulate 480 homes in the city and would extend Inglewood’s Residential Sound Insulation Program.
The grant will give “relief to families in Inglewood who experience airport noise every day,” said Waters, who represents the area.
“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,” she said.
Inglewood residents interested in receiving financial help in soundproofing their homes can contact the city at (310) 412-5289.
