Hagerstown airport to get $1M in COVID relief

April 13, 2021

Hagerstown Regional Airport will receive more than $1 million in COVID-19 relief money, according to U.S. lawmakers. “We will utilize the funds for operational costs, specifically wages and benefits, just as we did with the CARES Act funds (last year),” Airport Director Garrison Plessinger wrote in an email. In April 2020, the federal government announced more than $107 million in COVID-19 economic relief to support airports across Maryland. At that time, the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security Act provided $1.1 million for the Hagerstown airport, based on a Federal Aviation Administration formula, to help with operational costs such as payroll and utilities, Plessinger said.
