Congressman Ami Bera (CA-7) announced a major, multi-million dollar grant from the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) today to improve Sacramento Mather Airport. The grant of $3,742,000 will be used to resurface pavement areas and upgrade drainage systems that will improve the airport's safety and efficiency.
"Mather Airport is a vital part of Sacramento's aviation and cargo infrastructure. This multi-million dollar grant will make Mather more convenient for passengers and businesses looking to invest in Sacramento. This is great news for our community and I look forward to seeing the improvements very soon," said Rep. Bera.
Congressman Bera believes the United States should continue to invest in future infrastructure, and that means funding Sacramento's long term success. This year's $3,742,000 FAA grant follows a $788,000 grant awarded to Mather Airport in 2016.
