availability of a hearing under subpart

application for Airport Improvement 
Program discretionary grants under 49 
U.S.C. 47115 and general aviation air-
port grants under 49 U.S.C. 47114(d)

fails to submit, in accordance with a 
Director’s Determination, a Corrective 
Action Plan acceptable to the FAA

spondent has corrected the areas of 
noncompliance, the Director will ter-
minate the proceeding. 

(g) A complainant’s standing termi-

nates upon the issuance of a Director’s 
Determination that finds a respondent

issues. The complainant may not ap-
