The U.S Department of Transportation’s (DOT) Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has awarded three grants to Put-in-Bay Township Port Authority located in northwest Ohio, totaling $66,000. The funds will go towards operations, personnel, cleaning, sanitization, janitorial services, debt service payments, and combating the spread of pathogens at the airport.

“Ohio airports are vital to supporting travel and commerce in the state,” said Sen. Sherrod Brown. “These investments will help to ensure the safety of Northwest Ohio airports for passengers for years to come.”

The DOT funds include: 

  • $22,000 grant to provide economic relief funds for costs related to operations, personnel, cleaning, sanitization, janitorial services, debt service payments, and combating the spread of pathogens at the North Bass Island Airport.
  • $22,000 grant to provide economic relief funds for costs related to operations, personnel, cleaning, sanitization, janitorial services, debt service payments, and combating the spread of pathogens at Put-in-Bay Airport.
  • $22,000 grant to provide economic relief funds for costs related to operations, personnel, cleaning, sanitization, janitorial services, debt service payments, and combating the spread of pathogens at Middle Bass Island Airport.

The FAA supports public-use airports included in the National Plan of Integrated Airport Systems (NPIAS) through the Airport Improvement Program. The program supports projects that improve airport safety, capacity, security and environmental impact.
