Airports Get Grants From FAA

Washington DC - The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) is making two grant awards to airports in Aitkin County and on the Iron Range, Congressman Jim Oberstar announced today. The Chisholm-Hibbing Airport will receive a grant of $414,324 to purchase new snow removal equipment. The Aitkin Municipal Airport has been awarded $43,225 to conduct an environmental study of a runway expansion.

The grants were made from the FAA Airport Improvements Program. It is important to continue investing in our transportation infrastructure in rural America, said Oberstar. Efficient, well run airports help create jobs in rural communities.
