Rural Airports benefit from Community Airport Partnership Grants

The province announced that more than a dozen community airports have benefited from the Community Airport Partnership in the last year, a new record for Saskatchewan.


For the 2020-21 budget, the province chipped in $1.5 million towards 15 community airport projects. The extra funds came from the government’s two-year $7.5 billion stimulus program.


Some of the communities that benefited from the program include Humboldt, Leader, Melfort, North Battleford, Unity, Weyburn and Wynyard.


Under the program, communities can request up to $275,000 in grants for rehabilitation and improvements.


The program is cost-shared with the communities that benefit.


Applications are now open for Community Airport Partnership grants available in 2021-22.


Interested communities can apply at https://www.saskatchewan.ca/residents/transportation/airports/community-airport-partnership-cap-program.


The deadline for applications Feb. 24, 2021.
