CARES Act funds local airports

May 7, 2020 | Around Ottawa County | 0 comments

Ottawa County airports will receive federal funding as a result of the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (CARES Act) passed last month by Congress. The legislation includes $10 billion in funds to be awarded as economic relief to eligible U.S. airports affected by the prevention of, preparation for, and response to the COVID-19. These funds are being administered by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA).

The Erie-Ottawa International Airport in Port Clinton will receive a $69,000 grant, while Kelleys Island, Middle Bass and North Bass island airports will each receive $20,000. Cleveland-Hopkins International Airport will receive $46.3 million, and Toledo Express receives $2.9 million.

“I am pleased to announce that airports across our region have been awarded federal economic relief funding to offset the losses associated with the prevention, preparation, and response to the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Rep. Marcy Kaptur of Toledo. “Americans across Northern Ohio depend on these airports, whether it be for business or recreation. Ensuring these airports remain fully operational throughout and after the COVID-19 pandemic is of the utmost importance.”
