Press Release

WASHINGTON, DC (April 14, 2020) – Congressman David Price (D-NC), Chairman of the House Transportation, Housing and Urban Development (T-HUD) Appropriations Subcommittee, released a statement announcing that the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) will award $283 million to North Carolina airports, including $49.5 million to Raleigh-Durham International Airport (RDU), from the CARES Act to prevent, prepare, and respond to the impacts of COVID-19.  As T-HUD Chairman, Congressman Price secured nearly $10 billion for emergency airport grants in the recently passed legislation.

“Airports big and small are vital to our quality of life, not only connecting us physically, but enabling commerce and employing local workers,” said Congressman Price. “With travel down significantly as a result of COVID-19, our airports are struggling. I’m pleased to announce North Carolina airports will receive millions in additional funding this year, including $49.5 million to RDU, to keep airport workers employed, continue operations, and ensure our airports remain safe.”

Congressman Price serves as T-HUD Chairman, which helps determine funding levels for federal infrastructure and transportation programs.  Below you will find information on funding for North Carolina airports through the CARES Act, and more information about these grants can be found on the FAA’s website: https://www.faa.gov/airports/cares_act/
