Pullman-Moscow Regional Airport has been awarded a $951,779 federal grant to help fund construction of a new terminal building, according to an announcement Thursday by the U.S. Department of Transportation.

The Department of Transportation awarded $335 million in airport safety and infrastructure grants through the Federal Aviation Administration to 80 airports in 25 states. 

The Pullman-Moscow Regional Airport also received an $18 million federal grant in April that will go toward funding the new terminal.  The airport is undergoing a $154 million runway expansion and realignment project, also funded by various grants.

“Airport infrastructure projects funded by this $335 million in federal funding will advance safety, improve travel, generate jobs and provide other economic benefits for local communities,” U.S. Transportation Secretary Elaine L. Chao, said in a statement.
