Delta County Airport Receives $1 Million+ (Sawyer International $18 Million +) from CARES

Congressman Bergman from the 1st Congressional District announces that a number of local airports will be receiving monies through the CoronavirusAid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act that provide $10 billion to support U.S. airports experiencing severe economic disruption caused by the COVID-19 public health emergency. The monies come from a U.S. Treasury Fund and will be used to mitigate disruption and encourage improvements.

Why is this helpful for Delta County?

Delta county is ripe for international investment and manufacturing. It is a county that has underperformed the market but has much of the needed infrastructure and "Yooper Strong" working population that could really make things happen. While this monies is for airports that experienced economic disruption it does create an opportunity to improve the airport for other purposes such as economic development. Notice in the yellow the more commercial oriented Sayer International and Escanaba Delta County are getting a pretty good chunk. Kudos for Delta and the Region!
