GALION – The United States Department of Transportation’s (DOT) Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) awarded $22,000 to the City of Galion on Monday.

The funds will provide economic relief to Galion Municipal Airport for operations, personnel, cleaning, sanitization, janitorial services, debt service payments, and combating the spread of pathogens at the airport. 

“This grant is important to ensure that Galion Municipal Airport has the resources it needs to begin recovering from the coronavirus pandemic,” U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown said. “This funding will help combat the spread of pathogens, which is crucial to ensure both passengers and airport employees remain safe and healthy while traveling, especially as we see the rise of the Delta variant across the U.S.”

The FAA supports public-use airports included in the National Plan of Integrated Airport Systems (NPIAS) through the Airport Improvement Program. The program supports projects that improve airport safety, capacity, security and environmental impact.
