HILLSDALE, MI - U.S. Senators Debbie Stabenow (MI) and Gary Peters (MI) today announced that the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) will be awarding Hillsdale Municipal Airport $2,500,000 in federal funding to build a new terminal. The new terminal will be more accessible, ADA compliant, and energy efficient. This funding is from the Airport Terminal Program. Senators Stabenow and Peters secured these funds in the bipartisan Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act.


“Having reliable and safe air service is crucial for tourism, commerce, and economic development,” said Senator Stabenow. “This funding is another critical piece of the infrastructure investments coming to our state and will improve customer experiences at our airports.”


“Michigan airports play a key role in keeping travelers, communities, and business connected to important markets and destinations by providing safe, reliable air travel,” said Senator Peters. “I’m proud have helped enact the bipartisan infrastructure law that made this funding possible to construct a new, modernized terminal at Hillsdale Municipal Airport that is not only energy efficient but ADA compliant and accessible for travelers.”


The Airport Terminal Program is one of three aviation programs created by the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act. The law provides $1 billion annually for five years for Airport Terminal grants.
