MADISON TWP. — The Lenawee County Airport will receive federal funding to complete infrastructure improvements as part of the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act passed by congress late March.

According to a news release from U.S. Rep. Tim Walberg’s, R-Tipton, office Monday, the airport will receive a total of $890,000 in AIP discretionary funding and $98,889 in CARES Act local match funding.

Totaling $988,889, the grants will be spent on renovating the airport’s taxiway. Funding will be made available during the 2020 fiscal year.

“Completing these infrastructure projects without the standard local match will give these airports a much-needed boost as air travel and economic activity begins to re-open again,” Walberg said in the release. “Going forward, our local airports will continue to play an important role in connecting our economy, facilitating business travel, and transporting products.”

Hillsdale Municipal Airport will also received a total of $1,111,111 to extent its taxiway. Both airports’ projects are being funded completely with using federal grants.
