Willard Airport received more than $1.3 million COVID relief

The Airport Coronavirus Response Grant Program has provided $2 billion in grant funding to help an industry that has been greatly affected by the pandemic. Willard Airport will receive $1,387,375 of that. 

From Executive Director Tim Bannon:

“Like many airports, Willard Airport continues to be impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. This assistance will help offset the increased operating expenses and loss of revenue as a result of COVID-19. The funding will go towards operating expenses such as salaries, maintenance, and safety precautions essential to keeping the airport operational. A portion of the money will also be allocated for airport concessions relief.”

Willard Airport also received funding from the CARES Act in April.
