U.S. Senator Gardner Welcomes $2.7 Million in FAA Grants for Colorado Airports
Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Cory Gardner (R-CO), a member of the Senate Committee on Commerce, Science, and Transportation, applauded the announcement that four Colorado airports will receive a combined total of $2,720,285 in grants from the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) for maintenance and improvements. A portion of these grants was permitted under the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act, which was signed into law on March 27, 2020.
“Colorado’s local airports are critical to our smaller communities and rural areas,” said Senator Gardner. “I’m pleased to see this important funding will be delivered to four airports, which will go toward infrastructure and planning projects that will enable the airports to make improvements and ultimately lead to better service for Coloradans.”
The airport grants include awards of:
- $1,763,970 for Durango-La Plata County Airport
- $656,315 for Limon Municipal Airport
- $150,000 for Granby-Grand County Airport
- $150,000 for Holyoke Airport
