WARWICK, R. I. T. F. Green Airport is receiving a federal grant to improve the runways and protecting wetlands in the vicinity of the facility.
U.S. Sen. Jack Reed says the Federal Aviation Administration has awarded the Rhode Island airport more than $725,000 in infrastructure grants. The Democrat says the funding will start and runways safer, and the operation of the airport more efficiently.
Reed is the ranking Democrat on the Transportation, Housing and Urban Development of the sub-committee. He says that the subsidies for T. F. Green are included in a nearly $3.2 billion in airport improvement program approved by the Congress.
