National News

WASHINGTON D.C. (CBS) – Airports across the country are now set to receive $8 Billion in government grants to help recover from the past year.

Airports are still dealing with lower volumes of traffic, high debt payments, and new expenses stemming from the pandemic.

Officials say these grants are included in the 1.9 Trillion dollar stimulus package that was approved in March.
