Money is from recently passed Infrastructure bill

Quincy Regional Airport is getting a million dollars in aid from the Federal Aviation Administration. 

The FAA announced Thursday that Quincy Regional will get just over $1 million, from money made available through the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law. A statement from the FAA says the money can used on runways, taxiways, safety and sustainability projects, as well as terminal, airport-transit connections and road projects. Quincy Regional Airport Director Sandra Shore says the money will be used for the on-going runway project.

Hannibal Regional and Bowling Green Municipal will both get $110,000, as will the Pittsfield and Mt. Sterling airports. Keokuk Municipal will get $159,000, while Ft. Madison Municipal will get $110,000. Illinois' 77 airports received over $123 million through the legislation. Quincy Regional and the other airports can submit projects they wish to use the funds on for FAA review in the coming weeks.

The grant is the first of five annual rounds of funding Illinois airports will get.
