Aeronautics Commission Awards $9.7 Million for Airport Infrastructure Grants

August 18, 2020 14:50 | Anonymous

By Kyle Wanner, Executive Director

The North Dakota Aeronautics Commission (NDAC) recently finalized approximately $9.7 million in infrastructure grant allocations to 141 individual projects at 55 different public-use airports throughout the state.

Seven million of the allocation is being made as a part of a $20 million-dollar transfer that the state legislature approved in the last legislative session from the Strategic Investment and Improvement Fund (SIIF) to provide assistance with the large-scale projects that are ongoing at both the Watford City Airport and the Dickinson Theodore Roosevelt Regional Airport.  

Another $2.7 million of the allocation was made from the Aeronautics Commission Special Fund where the primary revenue source for these grants is derived from state tax collections on aviation fuel and aircraft sales. These state grants are critical in maintaining the needed infrastructure to support the aviation industry, which is a major contributor to the state’s economy and standard of living.

These state airport grant allocations will help to leverage and supplement the federal funding being received for high priority airport projects within North Dakota, while at the same time ensuring that our statewide aviation system is being maintained.  These grants will also help to create jobs within our communities and will greatly assist our airports in preparing them to be in a better position to help our economy rebound from the impacts caused by the COVID-19 virus.

Continue reading for a listing of each of the public airports that received a state grant, along with a description of at least one of their funded projects.  A full listing of the airport grants and dollar amounts can also be found in the news section on the NDAC website.  

Congratulations to all of the communities on their grant awards!
