Killeen-Fort Hood Regional Airport Receives $5 Million Grant for Energy Efficiency and Customer Experience Upgrades

The Killeen-Fort Hood-Regional Airport (GRK) is set to receive a $5 million grant as part of the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law Airport Terminal Program. The grant will be used to fund a complete LED retrofit of the entire airport campus, installation of a solar integrated covered parking in the car rental parking area, and a covered walkway from the terminal to the car rental lot. This project will not only decrease Aviation’s operations budget by lowering energy costs but also provide an upgrade to the customer experience by providing covered parking options at the airport. The funding is part of the Airport Terminal Act, one of three aviation programs created by the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, which provides $1 billion annually for five years for Airport Terminal Program grants. In total, the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law will provide $25 billion to modernize the country’s airport infrastructure.
