Hoeven Announces $4 Million in DOT Grants for Grand Forks, Jamestown, Parshall Airports

WASHINGTON – Senator John Hoeven today announced the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) has awarded three grants totaling $4 million to improve North Dakota airports. The DOT funds are made available through the Federal Aviation Administration’s (FAA) Airport Improvement Program (AIP), which supports the planning and development of public-use airports. The details of the grants are as follows:

  • Grand Forks International Airport – $2.8 million to construct an aircraft rescue and firefighting building.
  • Jamestown Regional Airport – $729,000 for environmental mitigation.
  • Parshall Municipal Airport – $489,000 for the second phase of its taxiway rehabilitation.

“North Dakota enjoys a vibrant economy today because we invested in the right kind of pro-growth business environment,” said Hoeven. “In order to sustain that growth, we have to meet the demands that come with it. These funds continue our efforts to invest in our transportation infrastructure, which is so vital to meeting our state’s dynamic business needs.”

Hoeven serves as a member of the Senate Appropriations Committee, where he has been working to support programs, such as AIP, that invest in infrastructure and other services to meet the needs of North Dakota’s growing population and commerce.
