T.F. Green international airport lands $14.8M Grant
WARWICK, R.I. (WLNE) – Senators Jack Reed and Sheldon Whitehouse, alongside Congressmen Jim Langevin and David Cicilline announced that the Federal Aviation Administration has awarded a $14.8 million grant to Rhode Island T.F. Green International Airport (PVD).
This funding could be used for protection against spreading pathogens at the airport.
“I am pleased to help Rhode Island T.F. Green International Airport land this federal grant. Airports were hit hard by the pandemic and these funds will help sustain them financially and keep the traveling public safe,” said Senator Reed, a senior member of the Appropriations Subcommittee on Transportation, Housing, and Urban Development and Related Agencies (THUD), helped lead efforts to make these funds available through the American Rescue Plan Act. “This is flexible funding that can be used broadly to help the airport return to pre-pandemic levels of service.”
