WASHINGTON D.C. — Arkansas’ federal lawmakers today announced that six Arkansas rural airports — including the Carlisle Municipal Airport — will receive more than $1.2 million in Federal Aviation Administration grants.

The Carlisle Municipal Airport will receive $174,330 to rehabilitate the runway. The rehabilitation is needed to maintain the structural integrity of the pavement and to minimize foreign object debris.

Airports in Clarendon, Corning, Danville, Marked Tree and Mount Ida also received funding.
