WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senators Debbie Stabenow (MI) and Gary Peters (MI) Tuesday announced that the U.S. Department of Transportation will be awarding $13,930,267 to Gerald R Ford International Airport. This funding will go toward costs related to operations, personnel, cleaning, sanitization, janitorial services, and combating the spread of pathogens at the airport. 

“These investments will make air travel safer and more reliable,” said Senator Stabenow. “It will help our communities rebound from the pandemic and encourage businesses to invest in the region and create jobs.” 

“As we work to rebuild our economy back stronger from this pandemic, we must ensure that Michigan airports can continue connecting people, communities, and businesses across our state by providing reliable, safe air travel,” said Senator Peters. “I’m pleased to welcome this federal grant for the Gerald R. Ford International Airport, which we secured through the American Rescue Plan and will help cover staffing costs and improve airport operations.”
