FAA Funding For Airfield Improvements

Walnut Ridge Airport

The Trump administration has awarded several community airports across the state the first allotment of nearly $4.5 million in federal grants for 2019 to fund and upgrade taxiways, terminals and other airfield infrastructure improvements nationwide.

Last week, DOT Secretary Elaine Chao first announced that the department’s Federal Aviation Administration will award $840 million in airport infrastructure grants to hundreds of airports across the country. The funding is the first of $3.18 billion in so-called Airport Improvement Program funding from the FAA for fiscal year 2019, which runs from Oct. 1, 2018 to September 30 of this year.     MORE
