WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator Kevin Cramer announced the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) awarded grants to three local airports in North Dakota. These funds are appropriated through the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act, a bill crafted in the Senate which Senator Cramer helped pass.

Barnes County Municipal Airport- $30,000
Oakes Municipal Airport – $30,000
Lisbon Municipal Airport – $20,000

This funding is awarded through the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) under DOT and will aid these local airports by supporting continuing operations and replacing lost revenue. The grants follow previous DOT funding announcements awarding funds through the CARES Act to local airports in North Dakota.
