Cornyn: Greater Houston Area Airports to Receive $201M in Coronavirus Relief Funds

WASHINGTON – Several airports in the Greater Houston area were awarded a number of federal grants totaling $200,953,087 as economic relief following the economic distress caused by the outbreak of the novel coronavirus, U.S. Sen.

The funding, which was appropriated by Congress last month as part of the CARES Act, comes through the U.S. Department of Transportation. You can read more about these grants here.

“As Texas reels from the economic destruction caused by the coronavirus outbreak, it’s important our airports have the resources they need to weather the storm,” Sen.
