Local airports receive COVID-19 relief funding


U.S. Senator Kevin Cramer (R-ND) announced today the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) awarded grants to four local airports in North Dakota. These funds are appropriated through the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act, a bill crafted in the Senate which Senator Cramer helped pass.

  • Watford City Municipal Airport - $30,000
  • Hillsboro Municipal Airport - $30,000
  • Ashley Municipal Airport - $20,000
  • Edgeley Municipal Airport - $20,000

This funding is awarded through the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) under DOT and will aid these local airports by supporting continuing operations and replacing lost revenue. The grants follow previous DOT funding announcements awarding funds through the CARES Act to local airports in North Dakota.
