Sinema: Kingman Airport Awarded $329k for Runway Repairs

Jul 29, 2020

WASHINGTON – Arizona senior Senator Kyrsten Sinema announced that Kingman Airport will receive over $329,000 in federal grant funding to renovate 6,827 feet of the existing runway pavement to maintain its ability to operate and enhance safety.
“Today’s grant funding invests in critical repairs, improving safety and efficiency at Kingman Airport,” said Sinema.
The $329,453 Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) grant includes over $29,000 in CARES Act funding—landmark bipartisan legislation that Sinema championed into law—which helped increase the federal share of the grant to 100%.
In late July, two of Sinema’s bills investing in Arizona’s airports and economic growth cleared the Senate’s Commerce Committee with broad bipartisan support. Sinema’s bipartisan Expedited Delivery of Airport Infrastructure Act and Airport Infrastructure Readiness Act of 2020 both head to the Senate floor for full consideration.
In April, Sinema helped secure over $220 million in federal funding for Arizona airports from the bipartisan CARES Act. These funds follow Sinema’s work to ensure massive investment in Arizona’s airports, which have been particularly impacted by the coronavirus pandemic.
