President Biden, Federal Aviation Administration Deliver Historic Investments to Airport in Augusta, Kansas

 Wednesday, April 20, 2022 


During a visit to Augusta Municipal Airport near Augusta, Kan., FAA Deputy Administrator Bradley Mims highlighted funding coming the airport’s way as part of President Biden’s Bipartisan Infrastructure Law (BIL) that provides a once-in-a-generation investment in rural and smaller communities. The Biden-Harris Administration is investing in the infrastructure that benefits Americans in smaller towns to create good-paying jobs, generate new economic opportunities and build community wealth.

“These communities may be small in size, but they have a big impact on keeping our National Airspace System operating safely and efficiently. With this new funding, Augusta Municipal and airports across the country will get to work on projects that have waited for years,” FAA Deputy Administrator A. Bradley Mims said while visiting the airport.

Augusta Municipal Airport is set to receive $159,000 in Bipartisan Infrastructure Law funding for Fiscal Year 2022. This program allows investments in runways, taxiways, safety and sustainability projects, as well as terminal, airport-transit connections and roadway projects. The Bipartisan Infrastructure Law invests $20 billion in the nation’s airports.

President Biden’s Bipartisan Infrastructure Law is sending historic investments to revitalize and rebuild small and municipal communities across the country. Supporting Americans living in these areas remains a top priority for the Biden Administration, and the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law delivers on the President’s promises to provide affordable high-speed Internet, safe roads and bridges, clean drinking water, modern wastewater systems, reliable and affordable electricity, and good-paying jobs in every community.

As part of this effort, the Biden Administration is also committed to working with communities to help them access federal resources and improving transparency. In small towns across the country, like Augusta, the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law delivers historic funding, flexibilities, and benefits:
