Several airports in the Waco-Temple-Killeen area were awarded a number of federal grants totaling $20,477,799 as economic relief following the economic distress caused by the outbreak of the novel coronavirus, U.S. Sen. John Cornyn announced today.

The funding, which was appropriated by Congress last month as part of the CARES Act, comes through the U.S. Department of Transportation.
