WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — Wilmington International Airport is getting some financial help.

The NCDOT’s Division of Aviation has awarded the airport a $300,000 grant to match FAA funding. The money will go toward construction of a pipe drainage project to enhance safety.

The grant is part of the State Aid to Airports program, which is also giving $2 million to Jacksonville’s Albert J. Ellis Airport. That money will help with terminal redevelopment, including construction of general and commercial service terminals.

The State Aid to Airports Program is NCDOT’s basic airport aid program. This program provides funds for the purpose of planning, acquiring, constructing or improving municipal, county and other publicly owned or controlled airports, and to authorize related programs of aviation safety, promotions and long-range planning.
