Inglewood will receive an $8 million grant from the Federal Aviation Administration to help insulate homes against noise from nearby Los Angeles International Airport, Rep. Maxine Waters announced Monday.
“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,” said Waters, D-Los Angeles.
The funding, which will be provided through the city’s Residential Sound Insulation Program, is expected to provide upgrades to 202 homes, according to Waters’ office. Residents who want to find out if they qualify for soundproofing can call the city at (310) 412-5289.
“Noise from planes landing at and department from LAX is very disruptive for these families,” Waters said. “This grant will bring relief to families in Inglewood who have to live with airport noise every day.”
