Tester Secures $2.1 Million for Harlem Airport

Funding will be used to rehabilitate a taxiway, runway and apron at the airport

U.S. Senator Jon Tester today announced $2,111,111 in Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) grants for Harlem Airport to rehabilitate a taxiway, runway, and apron.

“In the wake of 18 months of economic crisis, our airports are key to ensuring we can continue to create good-paying jobs and get our economy back on track,” said Tester. “I was proud to fight for and secure funding that will help Harlem Airport keep families connected and bolster communities in North Central Montana.”

Tester secured $1.9 million of funding from the FAA’s Airport Improvement Program. Additionally, $211,111 in matching funds were included as a result of the American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA), which Tester helped negotiate. Tester also announced $4,291,222 in FAA and ARPA funds for Glacier Park International Airport in Kalispell.

Tester has worked tirelessly to ensure that Montana airports are able to serve their communities during the COVID-19 pandemic and beyond. He was the only member of Montana’s delegation to support the American Rescue Plan, which secured $32.8 million for Montana’s airports. Last year, he also secured nearly $74 million for more than 70 airports across Montana to cover operational expenses and development projects during the public health crisis.
