Fourteen greater Minnesota airports, including Mankato’s, are receiving just over 26 million dollars in federal funding for improvements. Cassandra Isackson is MnDOT’s Aeronautics Director:

“Of the 133 public airports in the state about 70-percent of them receive federal funding. 100 percent of those 133 receive funding from the state. So all of these federal projects also had state participation.”

This is the final round of FAA funding issued in 2019.
