The Department of Education has announced that Texas Wesleyan University, Texas Christian University, the University of North Texas Health Science Center and the Tarrant County College District will receive a combined $15,129,368 in grants from the CARES Act Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund.
In a separate announcement, the Department of Transportation (DOT) announced that Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport will receive $4,561,039 toward the rehabilitation of the airport taxiway.
“As a former educator, I know firsthand how important quality education is to a strong country,” said 12th District U.S. Rep. Kay Granger, R-Fort Worth. “The coronavirus pandemic is a time of unprecedented uncertainty for many of America’s universities and colleges, and it has jeopardized many institutions’ affordability and access for its students.”
The institutions and the amounts: Tarrant County College District, $10,992,243; Texas Christian University, $2,864,321; Texas Wesleyan University, $928,955; and University of North Texas Health Science Center, $343,849.
Granger also said that airports are engines of economic growth, and the Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport has played a strong role in the booming growth enjoyed in Fort Worth and the surrounding area.
“I’m pleased to see that Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport will receive over $4.5 million towards the rehabilitation of its taxiway, which will increase the airport’s overall efficiency and capacity,” she said. “With hundreds of planes landing at DFW Airport every day, this improvement is a win for not just the metroplex, but the American aviation infrastructure overall.”
Granger is the top Republican on the U.S. House Appropriations Committee.
