Joyce Announces $5.6 Million U.S. Department of Transportation Grant for Cuyahoga County Airport

WASHINGTON – Today, Congressman Dave Joyce (OH-14) announced that the U.S. Department of Transportation awarded the Cuyahoga County Airport $5,610,957 through its Airport Improvement Program. The grant will be used to help the airport with criticalinfrastructure projects such as runways and taxiways as well as airport signage, lighting and markings. The funding that made this grant possible was appropriated through H.R. 1865 and H.R. 748, both of which passed the House with Joyce’s support.

“I’m proud to announce this significant federal funding for the Cuyahoga County airport,” said Joyce. “Ohio’s airports have suffered significantly as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, and this federal support will provide them with the resources necessary to complete critical maintenance and infrastructure projects. I look forward to having these tax dollars returned to Northeast Ohio and seeing the positive impact they have not only on the communities in Cuyahoga County, but also the surrounding areas in Northeast Ohio that rely on this airport for transportation.”

“The Cuyahoga County Airport plays an important role in the transportation infrastructure of Cuyahoga County,” said Cuyahoga County Executive Armond Budish. “We are grateful for Congressman Joyce’s support and for this funding which will allow for the reconstruction of a large part of the Apron and Taxiways at the Airport. The work is critical to keeping our airport as a first-class and safe part of the National Airport System.”
