“This investment in our local airports is long overdue,” Koehler said. “This money from the Rebuild Illinois program will allow airports in Central Illinois and across the state to pay for much-needed improvements that will keep passengers safe and our economy strong. I encourage our local airports to take advantage of this opportunity and apply for funding.”

Gov. JB Pritzker and the Illinois Department of Transportation announced that the Rebuild Illinois program will provide $94 million in funding to improve public airports throughout the state. Through a competitive grant process, airports may submit project proposals for updates, improvements, and extensions of their facilities.

Airports must be for public use and included in the Illinois Aviation System Plan to be eligible for the funding. Applications are due June 14 to be eligible for grants of up to $25 million.

Airports in the Peoria area that are eligible to apply for the funding include General Wayne A. Downing Peoria International Airport, Ingersoll Airport in Canton, and Pekin Municipal Airport.

Application information is available by visiting IDOT’s Airport Improvement Program page. Awards are anticipated to be announced later this year.
