USDOT announces $76M in airport improvement grants

The U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) announced the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) FY2021 Airport Improvement Program grants would provide $76 million for improvements to three international airports.

The first installment of the approximately $3.2 billion in funding will go to Chicago O’Hare International Airport, Dallas-Fort Worth International, and Fort Lauderdale/Hollywood International Airports.

“Modernizing our nation’s infrastructure is a top priority for President Biden’s economic agenda, and the Airport Improvement Program allows airports nationwide to upgrade and improve the safety of their facilities,” said U.S. Secretary of Transportation Pete Buttigieg. “These improvements—at some of our nation’s busiest airports—will serve our communities and the traveling public as we start to build our country back better.”
