WASHINGTON, DC –Congresswoman Johnson released the following statement after announcing that the Dallas Fort Worth (DFW) International Airport would be awarded $52 million in grant funding through the Federal Aviation Administration’s Airport Improvement Program (AIP):
On Monday, November 27, 2017, Congresswoman Eddie Bernice Johnson attended a ceremony to commemorate this important occasion at DFW International Airport and announced that the airport will be receiving a total of $52 million in federal funding through the Federal Aviation Administration’s Airport Improvement Program.
