Harkin Announces Grant for Winterset Municipal Airport
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Senator Tom Harkin (D-IA) today announced that the U. S. Department of Transportation (DOT) has awarded $593,122 to the Winterset-Madison County Airport Authority. The grant will fund the construction of a hangar building. The grant was made through the Federal Aviation Administration. Harkin is a senior member of the Senate panel that funds transportation initiatives.
“When Iowa airports have funding to make improvements like a hangar, it can be more attractive to job creating businesses,” said Harkin. “This grant will assist the Winterset Municipal Airport in achieving this goal.”
