Congressman Dave Loebsack, D-Iowa, announced that Osceola Municipal Airport will receive $189,000 to construct a hangar building that will assist the airport to be as self-sustaining as possible by generating revenue.

The funds come from the U.S. Department of Transportation’s (DOT) grant program.

“Our local airports play a critical role in allowing our communities to grow, as well as fuel additional economic development in the region,” Loebsack said. “I am pleased that the Osceola Municipal Airport is receiving this competitive grant, which will help fund much needed improvements and allow the airports to continue functioning safely and effectively.”
