Our Community

DFW places a high priority on improving the quality of life for the community. The Airport is proud of its role as the economic engine of North Texas and of its ongoing efforts to lead a wide variety of initiatives that impact the surrounding region.

DFW's Community practices include:

Community Outreach

DFW continues to invest its resources in the community by suporting local chambers of commerce, fostering environmental education and outreach, sponsoring educational initiatives and spearheading its annual United Way campaign that donates hundreds of thousands of dollars to worthwhile agencies. In addition, local volunteers contribute to the Airport by volunteering for DFW's well-known Ambassador program or the Welcome Home a Hero program which provides a warm greeting for troops returning from service overseas.

Supplier Diversity

DFW has set a national standard for supporting minority- and women-owned enterprises. The Airport's investment in M/WBE business development creates a strong pool of available vendors and allows these firms to grow and create jobs strengthening the economy of our community.

Noise Mitigation

The goal of DFW's Noise Compatibility Center is to monitor and minimize flight-related noise in communities near the Airport. Using a network of noise-monitoring stations located throughout nearby neighborhoods, the Noise Compatibility Center responds to complaints and works with partner agencies to reduce future infractions. In addition to its monitoring duties, the Airport's Noise Compatibility Center also assists nearby communities in assessing the impact of flight noise on their land use plans.
