The Mora Municipal Airport received a $30,000 grant from the Federal Aviation Administration which will be used to update the airport’s fuel card reader system.
The U.S. Department of Transportation’s Federal Aviation Administration is awarding $158,378,970 in airport aid to 97 airports in Minnesota to help respond to the COVID-19 public health emergency.
This grant funding is part of the Trump Administration’s newly created Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act Airport Grant Program, an effort to provide unprecedented and immediate relief to American families, workers and businesses.
The funds are available for airport capital expenditures, airport operating expenses including payroll and utilities, and airport debt payments.
Mora City Administrator Lindy Crawford reported that the Mora Municipal Airport hasn’t been affected by COVID-19.
“We will be using these funds to update our fuel card reader system, a project that has needed to be done for quite some time,” she reported.
