Bowman Field Airport receives funding from Bipartisan Infrastructure Law

During a visit to Bowman Field Airport (LOU), Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Associate Administrator of Airports, Shannetta Griffin, highlighted funding coming the airport’s way as part of President Biden’s Bipartisan Infrastructure Law that provides a once-in-a-generation investment. The Biden-Harris Administration is investing in infrastructure that benefits Americans in overlooked communities to create good-paying jobs, generate new economic opportunities and build community wealth.

“For a more than century, Bowman Field has helped the aviation industry and this community take off and grow – and it still plays that important role for this region. The funding coming its way will allow it to make improvements to the airport to keep that proud tradition,” said Griffin while visiting the airport.

Bowman Field is set to receive $295,000 in Bipartisan Infrastructure Law funding for Fiscal Year 2022. The Bipartisan Infrastructure Law program allows investments in runways, taxiways, safety, and sustainability projects, as well as terminal, airport-transit connections and roadway projects. The program invests $20 billion in the nation’s airports.

President Biden’s Bipartisan Infrastructure Law is sending historic investments to revitalise and rebuild small and municipal communities across the country. Supporting Americans living in these areas remains a top priority for the Biden Administration, and the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law delivers on the President’s promises to provide affordable high-speed Internet, safe roads and bridges, clean drinking water, modern wastewater systems, reliable and affordable electricity, and good-paying jobs in every community.

As part of this effort, the Biden Administration is also committed to working with communities to help them access federal resources and improving transparency. In small towns across the country, the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law delivers historic funding, flexibilities, and benefits.
