Great Bend Municipal Airport to receive COVID-19 grant
airport CARES Act grant
The Great Bend Municipal Airport will receive grant as part of CARES Act.

Earlier this week, U.S. Senator Jerry Moran (R-Kan.) reported the Great Bend Municipal Airport will Receive a grant provided by the Phase III Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act as a result of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

General aviation airports will receive funds based on their airport categories, such as National, Regional, Local, Basic and Unclassified. Great Bend Municipal is categorized as a Regional GA (General Aviation) airport and is slated to receive $69,000. These funds are to be utilized to offset those expenses and capital expenditures permitted by the FAA grant guidelines.

“Americans around the country are doing their part to stop the spread of the virus by limiting their travel and staying home,” said Sen. Moran. “While reducing air travel is important to stop the spread of the virus, it has caused significant losses for our airports.”

Whether large or small, Kansas airports play an important role in the commerce and travel of our state, he said. “I advocated strongly for the inclusion of airport relief in the CARES Act and am glad to see critical resources being provided for Kansas airports. While this can’t replace the usual business of these airports, these grants will work to alleviate the hardships currently felt within the industry.”
