WASHINGTON – Senator John Hoeven, a member of the Senate Transportation, Housing and Urban Development Appropriations Committee, today announced that the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT), through the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), has awarded funding to five airports in North Dakota. Today’s funding comes with an additional match granted from the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act to support the airports and their efforts to continue critical infrastructure projects. Details are as follows:
- Minot International Airport – $3,695,726, which includes a $229,572 match from the CARES Act to construct a taxiway and reconstruct and expand an apron.
- Williston Basin International Airport – $1,049,008, which includes a $555 match from the CARES Act to install navigational aids, and a guidance system associated with the construction of a new crosswind runway.
- Harvey Municipal Airport – $333,634, which includes a $18,363 match from the CARES Act to acquire snow removal equipment.

“Today’s funding, in part from the CARES Act, will ensure airports across our state are capable of continuing projects regardless of current financial circumstances due to the COVID-19 public health emergency,” said Hoeven.
