Hoeven Announces More Than $2 Million for Mohall Municipal Airport

WASHINGTON – Senator John Hoeven, a member of the Senate Transportation, Housing and Urban Development (THUD) Appropriations Committee, today announced that the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has awarded $2,400,000 to the Mohall Municipal Airport through the Supplemental Airport Improvement Program (AIP). This funding will be used to extend and widen the runway to accommodate larger aircraft, which has been identified as a need due to growth in the region. Mohall Municipal Airport has grown from 4 based aircraft in 2012 to 40 aircraft today. 

Senator Hoeven helped establish the Supplemental AIP program in the Fiscal Year (FY) 2018 THUD Appropriations Bill, and has continued to provide funding for the program in FY19 and FY20, as part of a down-payment on investment in our nation’s infrastructure. The Supplemental AIP Program gives priority consideration for funding to projects at smaller, non-hub airports, like those in North Dakota.

“This funding supports a critical infrastructure project in Mohall, allowing the airport to grow to support the needs of the community, while ensuring safe and reliable air service in the region,” said Hoeven.
