What $7.1 Million in Federal Funds Will Do at CVG Airport

The Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport received $7.1 million in Airport Improvement Program grants.

U.S. Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao made the announcement at the airport on Friday.

The federal program helps airports with infrastructure projects like runways, taxiways, signage, lighting, and markings.

At CVG, the funds will be used as follows:

  • $3.6M grant for the construction and connection of an additional deice pad
  • $2.5M grant for phase two of the Concourse A ramp rehabilitation project
  • $987,215 grant for a new baggage carousel in Concourse A

“This grant funding is critical to CVG, and we thank Secretary Chao for recognizing that infrastructure investment enables continued growth at the airport,” said Candace McGraw, chief executive officer, CVG. “These funds will ensure continued safe operations and elevate the passenger experience.”
