Young Announces More Than $96 Million in Indiana Airport Funding from the CARES Act

INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. – U.S. Senator Todd Young (R-Ind.) today announced Indiana will receive $96,523,889 in funding to assist 65 Hoosier airports. This funding was made available by the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act, which was recently passed by Congress and signed by President Trump.


“The coronavirus outbreak has brought the travel industry to a near standstill. Federal assistance will keep our airports and aviation industry running, not just for travel, but for the ability to ship food, supplies, and other essential resources,” said Senator Young. “I am proud to announce that the CARES Act has made $96,523,889 available to help Hoosier airports remain operational and maintain employees as we continue to navigate the coronavirus pandemic.”
