The Wayne County Airport is among airports across Kentucky that will
share in funding through the Federal Aviation Administration's
Airport Improvement Program (AIP).
The federal funding was made available by the Coronavirus Aid,
Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act.
The local airport has been awarded $20,000, according to an
announcement made last week by Senator Mitch McConnell.

as a result of the coronavirus.

government will supply 100 percent of the AIP funding, which normally
requires a local match.
Statewide airports were awarded more than $77 million through the CARES Act.
