U.S. Senator Kevin Cramer (R-ND) announced today the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) awarded funds to North Dakota airports as a part of their $10 billion nation-wide allocation to commercial and general aviation airports through the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act Airport Grant Program.

This funding will support continuing operations and replace lost revenue resulting from the sharp decline in passenger traffic and other airport business due to the COVID-19 public health emergency. The total available amount for each recipient is based on funding appropriated under the CARES Act, a bill crafted in the Senate which Senator Cramer helped pass. This effort is providing unprecedented and immediate relief to American families, workers, and businesses.

Fargo's Hector International Airport will receive $21,637,515.
