Connecticut's 11 airports will be receiving around $12.5 million from the U.S. Department of Transportation’s Federal Aviation Administration through the infrastructure law.
This is the first of five annual rounds of funding Connecticut airports will receive and the money will be available to invest in runways, taxiways, safety and sustainability projects, as well as terminal, airport-transit connections and roadway projects, according to the FAA.
Connecticut airports can submit projects they wish to use the funds on for FAA review in the coming weeks.
The money comes from the Airport Infrastructure Grant program, one of three new aviation programs created by the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, the FAA said. The law provides $15 billion over five years for this program.
