Press Release

Location: Washington, DC

U.S. Senator Susan Collins, the Ranking Member of the Senate Appropriations Subcommittee on Transportation, and U.S. Senator Angus King today announced that two Maine airports have been awarded federal grants, totaling $450,000, from the Federal Aviation Administration to be used for general improvements and safety enhancements.

"In a rural state like Maine, small airports play a critical role in supporting commerce and local businesses. This funding will help our airports protect vital equipment that maintains a safe operational environment and conduct important research related to future improvements," Senators Collins and King said in a joint statement.

The awards and recipients are as follows:

Houlton International Airport in Houlton will receive $300,000 to construct a snow removal equipment building to help extend the life of snow removal equipment by protecting it from adverse weather conditions.

Sugarloaf Regional Airport in Carrabassett Valley will receive $150,000 to fund an environmental assessment to evaluate environmental issues related to the proposed terminal area improvements.
