Reminder: AIR grant applications due Jan. 31

The Airport Infrastructure Renewal (AIR) Program provides grants to Greater Minnesota counties, airport authorities or cities to keep or enhance jobs in the area, increase the tax base, or expand or create new economic development.

An eligible project is expected to use the grant funds for the capital costs of redevelopment of an existing facility or construction of a new facility; and for public and private infrastructure costs, including broadband infrastructure costs, necessary for an eligible airport infrastructure renewal economic development project.
