The Rick Husband Amarillo International Airport is awarded two federal grants totaling $2,811,836 in relief funds following the economic distress caused by the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
The funding, which was appropriated by Congress in December as part of the Coronavirus Relief and Response Supplemental Appropriations (CRRSA) Act, comes through the U.S. Department of Transportation.
Senator John Cornyn made the announcement on Monday, March 15.
He says it’s critical that Texas airports are given every resource they need to handle the coming increase in travel, and this will benefit the health and well-being of travelers in Amarillo.
