WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senators Debbie Stabenow (MI) and Gary Peters (MI) today announced that the U.S. Department of Transportation will be awarding $111,940 to Capital Region International Airport. This Federal Aviation Administration grant will go towards improving the runways at the airport. The grant is possible because of the American Rescue Plan Act, which Senators Stabenow and Peters helped pass in Congress.


"Having reliable and safe air service is important to Michigan tourism, commerce, and economic development," said Senator Stabenow. "This grant is an important investment in the infrastructure of our airports and will help our communities rebound from the pandemic."


“Ensuring safe and reliable air travel – particularly through our state’s capital – is critical to keeping communities and businesses across Michigan connected to important markets and destinations,” said Senator Peters. “I’m pleased to announce this federal grant to Capital Region International Airport in Lansing, which will help strengthen the airport’s transportation infrastructure and provide safer travel for Michiganders.”
