During a visit to Denton Enterprise Airport, Acting FAA Administrator Billy Nolen highlighted funding coming the airport’s way as part of President Biden’s Bipartisan Infrastructure Law that provides a once-in-a-generation investment in communities across the country. The Biden-Harris Administration is investing in infrastructure that benefits Americans in smaller towns to create good-paying jobs, generate new economic opportunities, and build community wealth.
“General aviation airports are vital to this community and to communities throughout our nation. They are where pilots get trained, emergency medical services take off and land, and in many cases where young people are introduced to flying for the very first time,” Acting Administrator Nolen said while visiting the airport. “Denton County continues its rapid growth, and it’s essential we support its growth.”
Denton Enterprise Airport is set to receive $763,000 through the law in fiscal year 2022. This programme allows investments in runways, taxiways and safety and sustainability projects, as well as terminal, airport-transit connections and roadway projects. The airport is home to two flight training schools and one aircraft maintenance and repair school.
President Biden’s Bipartisan Infrastructure Law is sending historic investments to revitalise and rebuild small and municipal communities across the country. Supporting Americans living in these areas remains a top priority for the Biden Administration, and the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law delivers on the President’s promises to provide affordable high-speed Internet, safe roads and bridges, clean drinking water, modern wastewater systems, reliable and affordable electricity, and good-paying jobs in every community. The Bipartisan Infrastructure Law invests $20 billion in the nation’s airports.
As part of this effort, the Biden Administration is also committed to working with communities to help them access federal resources and improving transparency. In communities across the country, like Denton, the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law delivers historic funding, flexibilities, and benefits.
