TOPEKA, Kan. Senator Jerry Moran has announced that $8.9 million in grants will go to Kansas airports to help with COVID-19 related costs.

Senator Jerry Moran (R-Kan.) says $8.9 million in U.S. Department of Transportation grants will go to 23 Kansas airports in order to help with COVID-19 related expenses.
