Tennessee State Representative Curtis Johnson announces grant for Clarksville Outlaw Field Airport

The Seal of the State of TennesseeNashville, TN – Tennessee State Representative Curtis Johnson said today he has been informed by the Tennessee Department of Transportation (TDOT) that a $2,280,000 state grant has been approved for the Clarksville Outlaw Field Airport.

The grant, which will be combined with a $120,000 local match, was recommended through the Department of Transportation’s Division of Aeronautics for a total of $2,400,000.

“Our airports are essential to pave the way for economic development of our county.”  “This grant, which was one of the largest ones announced, will assist in apron rehabilitation at the airport to better serve those who utilize it,” Johnson said.

Except for routine expenditures, grant applications are reviewed by the Tennessee Aeronautics Commission (TAC), which is a five member board charged with policy planning and with regulating changes in the state Airport System Plan. The board carefully reviews all applications for grants to ensure that the proper state and local matching funds are in place and that the grants will be used for needed improvements.
