Fosston to receive $5.8 million in American Rescue Plan dollars for airport

The U.S. Department of Commerce announced the agency was investing $5.8 million in the city of Fosston.

According to a release, the grant from the Economic Development Administration funded by the American Rescue Plan will make infrastructure upgrades to the city’s existing airport industrial park. The project aims to boost business growth and expand the park.

U.S. Senator Amy Klobuchar said, “the funding will enable critical upgrades to Fosston’s airport industrial park, helping … boost the city’s role as a critical freight hub.”

Five hundred million dollars were available to American communities in this Economic Adjustment Assistance program in the American Rescue Plan.
