United States Senator Elizabeth Warren and Massachusetts State Senator Michael Moore can announce that the Worcester Regional Airport has been awarded grant funding from the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA).
“I am incredibly pleased that the Worcester Regional Airport has been provided this grant funding, as the airport is so important to the local communities and the whole of the Commonwealth,” said Senator Michael Moore (D-Millbury). “Updating the infrastructure to the travel systems throughout the state is essential as we continue to recover from the ongoing pandemic. I’d like to thank Senator Warren for her tireless efforts on behalf of the citizens of Massachusetts.”
“Massachusetts’ airports are critical to our regional economies and our communities. This significant FAA grant funding is just the start of investments in the Commonwealth from the Infrastructure Investments and Jobs Act to fix our crumbling infrastructure and boost our economic recovery,” said Senator Warren. “I will continue fighting in Congress to pass the Build Back Better Act to invest in universal childcare, take a big whack at the fight against climate change, and ensure corporations stop cheating the system.”
The funding received by the Worcester Regional Airport is under the FAA’s Airport Infrastructure Grants program, which has been allocated $3 billion for fiscal year 2022. This program was enacted through the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law.
