Joyce Announces Multiple U.S. Department of Transportation Grants for Northeast Ohio Airports

WASHINGTON, DC – Today, Congressmen Dave Joyce (OH-14) announced that the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) will award a total of $162,000 to help Northeast Ohio’s regional airports with costs related to operations, personnel, cleaning, sanitization, janitorial services, debt service payments, and combating the spread of pathogens, such as COVID-19.

“I’m pleased to announce these grants for several of the regional airports here in Ohio’s 14th Congressional District,” said Joyce. “Our airports have suffered significantly as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, and this federal support will help provide them with the resources necessary to continue to safely meet the transportation needs of Ohioans and those who travel to the Buckeye State. I applaud the U.S. Department of Transportation for returning these tax dollars to Northeast Ohio and look forward to seeing the positive impact they have not only on the communities in these counties, but also the surrounding areas that rely on these airports.”

Through its Federal Aviation Administration, DOT awarded $91,000 to the Cuyahoga County Airport, $23,000 to the Lake County Ohio Port and Economic Development Authority, $13,000 to the Portage County Regional Airport Authority, $13,000 to the Geauga County Airport Authority, $13,000 to the Kent State University Airport, and $9,000 to the Ashtabula County Airport Authority. This funding comes from the Coronavirus Response and Relief Supplemental Appropriations Act of 2020, which Joyce voted for last December.
