Released on May 10, 2019Once again, municipal airports in Saskatchewan will be making some upgrades and improvements through the Community Airport Partnership (CAP) program. The $700,000 in cost-shared grants will provide important investment dollars to nine community airports this year.
CAP is designed to help offset the capital costs of rehabilitation and infrastructure improvements with grants being cost-shared up to a maximum amount of $275,000.
“Over the past five years Yorkton has invested more than $269,000 in matching infrastructure improvement funds for our airport, which help to maintain and improve it,” Yorkton Mayor Bob Maloney said. “Yorkton Regional Airport is an important piece of our local and provincial transportation infrastructure and provides economic benefits throughout the region.”
“We are very pleased to obtain this CAP grant for improvements and upgrades to our airport facility,” Moosomin Mayor Larry Tomlinson. “Any investment into our local transportation infrastructure is always welcome.”
Airports benefiting from the CAP program this year include:
Since 2007, more than $7 million has been invested in community airports and, coupled with 50-50 matching community contributions, the program has generated about $14 million in airport improvements. A total of 36 different communities have benefited from the program since its inception.
